edible playdough recipes

I do not encourage little ones to actually eat clay, this develops in them inappropriate habits. However, these recipes are used sometimes by pre-school teachers who have trouble with tiny children putting things into their mouths. If they consume a bit of these recipes, the ingredients are non-toxic and should not injure them.

1/2 cup table salt
3 Tablespoons of oil
1 small package of Kool-aid

   Mix together in one bowl, 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, 3 Tablespoons of oil and 1 small package of Kool-aid or any other sweetened powdered drink. Add 1 cup of boiling water to the mixture combine all of the ingredients together. Knead the dough mixture until it is formed into a soft ball.
