Have fun this Valentine's day creating playdough hearts with this colorful play dough. One of our favorite recipes.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Homemade Valentine's Day Playdough
To make playdough mix flour, salt, cream of tartar and Kool-Aid in a medium saucepan. Add water and oil. Stir over medium heat 3-5 minutes. When mixture forms a ball in pan remove. Knead until smooth. Put in plastic bag and refrigerate.
Homemade Valentine's Day Playdough
Introduce a variety of materials to add texture and experiment with the playdough. Try toothpicks, rolling pins, plastic utensils, straws.

My kids enjoyed making Valentines cookies with our playdough. The koolaid added to the playdough makes it smell delicious and gives it an especially vibrant color.

We just made this! 2 batches according to this recipe, but then I ran out of cream of tartar. I found out you can sub with 3 TBS of white vinegar (the smell goes away or is masked by kool-aid), which I always have around. All batches turned out great. Thanks for inspiring me to finally make playdough!

We made playdough for the first time last night thanks to your simple recipe! I'm not a cook, but we actually had all of these ingredients at home (we use food coloring instead of Koolaid). We then used our garlic press, potato masher, etc and had so much fun! Thanks for the great idea!
