My friend, Debby, sent me this recipe for playdough that she got from a seasoned preschool teacher.

Mrs. Clifford’s Preschool Playdough Recipe

1/2 C salt
1 Tbl Alum (sold with the spices at the grocery store)
2 C all-purpose flour
2 C BOILING water
2 Tbl vegetable oil
1 pkg unsweetended kool-aid (I got the generic from Aldi & it worked great!  makes all kinds of fun colors)

*Mix flour, salt, alum well in a large bowl (I used my Kitchen-aid with great results).  Add boiling water, oil & kool-aid.  Mix well, cool & then knead until desired texture.  Store in ziplock bag (s).  This recipe will stay soft for weeks! (we made ours a month ago & it’s still in great shape!)

Warning from Debby: Kool-Aid makes the playdough smell very yummy and her toddler was hard to convince otherwise! :)
