The BEST Scented No Cook Play Dough

The BEST Scented No Cook Play DoughGracen and I may have just stumbled upon the best. play dough. recipe. ever. today….  Now I know I said similar things about this recipe, but this new one involves no cooking (win!) and smells delish (double win!) We did have to make a trip to the grocery store beforehand, as several of the ingredients are not things we regularly keep on hand, but it was well worth the trip.  This is by far the softest, squishiest, smoothest, nicest feeling {and smelling} play dough I’ve ever come across.  

BEST Scented No Cook Play Dough Instructions

 The BEST Scented No Cook Play Dough

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of  table salt
  • 1 packet of Kool Aid (the kind you have to add sugar to)
  • 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of glycerine (readily available in the first aid section of most grocery stores)
  • 3 drops of gel food colouring (in a colour that coordinates with your Kool Aid colour)
  • 1 cup of boiling water

Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Add wet ingredients, saving the boiling water for last.  Add the water and give the mixture a quick mix, banging off your whisk every once and a while.  At this point, the mixture will seem way too wet and sticky to make good play dough… Do not fret!  Leave the semi-mixed dough on the counter to cool.  Once cooled for about 10 minutes, dump the mixture onto the counter and knead really well.  At this point the dough will still seem a little too soft and sticky, but resist the urge to add flour {unless it is so sticky it is gooping up your hands}.  Knead for about 3 minutes, or until the dough reaches the perfect consistency.

Enjoy!
