Homemade play dough provides never-ending sensory stimulation :the smell, the feel -it is nothing like store-bought stuff. Orange-scented play dough is made out of Kool aid and is full of a distinct orange smell.
Here’s how to make your own batch:
Orange-Scented Play Dough
1.5 cups flour ( maybe 1/4 cup more)
1/4 cup salt
1 packet orange Kool aid powder
1 tablespoon of cream of tartar ( can be substituted with 1 tablespoon of vinegar)
1.5 tablespoons of oil
1 cup of water
optional :a few drops of orange food coloring.
In a saucepan, combine all dry ingredients. Add the oil and the water. Warm up on a low heat, while stirring. When the dough starts to form a ball in the middle of a saucepan, take it off the flame. Wait for it to cool down enough to be kneadable, and then knead well. Add a few drops of orange food coloring and knead again. Add more flour, if the dough is too sticky.
