Smelly Good Homemade Play Dough

I found this recipe at the MotherLoad for Fruity Play Dough.

Here is why I love this so much:

-Takes just minutes to make.
-I had all the ingredients on hand.
-Frugal craft for the kids: I'm guessing that a batch would cost maybe 25 cents with your biggest expense being the Kool-Aid.
-It smells so good!

-and the kids will love to help too!

Fruity Play Dough

1 cup flour
1 package Kool-Aid (cherry flavor is pictured here)
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I used corn oil and it turned out great)
1/4 cup salt
3/4 cup boiling water

Mix all dry ingredients in bowl then oil, then pour boiling water in and mix thoroughly. Wrap in cellophane or air tight container and store in fridge.
