A vibrant colored, fun play dough that your children can enjoy making, playing with, and eating! The soft drink mix gives it color and flavor!


  • 2 cups water
  • 2 ½ cups white flour
  • ½ cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 2 (0.13 ounce) packages unsweetened, fruit-flavored soft drink mix (such as KOOL-AID®)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Bring the water to a boil in a sauce pan; remove from heat and set aside.

Whisk together the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and soft drink mix in a large bowl; stir the vegetable oil into the flour mixture using a spoon, not a whisk. Pour the hot water into the bowl and continue stirring. When the dough is cool enough to handle, turn it onto a lightly-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Store unused portions in refrigerator.
