Celebrating Fun: Kool-Aid Play-Doh

My boys LOVE to play Play-Doh and while I am not a huge fan of the clean up (tiny bits of dough ground into their jeans, all over the floor, and mushed into the chairs), I do LOVE the HOURS of quiet playtime it brings.  They will sit and play for the entire day if I let them!

So can you imagine how thrilled I was to discover that September has a National Play-Doh Day!  YAY!  Talk about a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Play-Doh Cutie

Can you tell this cutie just loves to play with Play-Doh (and he does a good job keeping it out of his mouth too!).


Now we have LOTS of Play-Doh, in fact an entire storage bin of it, but it is always fun to make your own Play-Doh.  Thanks to Pinterest I discovered Kool-Aid Play-Doh!  Not only are the bright colors TONS of fun, but the smell is amazing!!!

Here is the recipe I have used in the past for Kool-Aid Play-Doh.  I actually think I added a bit more flour since the dough was not very firm.  In the end I used about 2 cups of flour to get my dough to the correct consistency.

I will be making some of this up tomorrow!  Might even invite the cousins or some friends over added fun! How about you?
