Back to School season is officially in full swing! Hayden has been in Kindergarten for a few weeks now and he’s adjusting to it well. He’s only going half days and one big change we have made in our household is less screen time. Over the summer, I would let Hayden watch some of his favorite shows plus enjoy time on the iPad. It was a big lifesaver as I had just had my twin girls and we were still adjusting! Now that we are in a better routine, we have cut down on screen time and I’m coming up with fun activities for Hayden to do.
I don’t know about you but when I think of Back to School, I can think back on all my Kool-Aid memories! I loved bringing those Kool-Aid Bursts in my lunchbox! I was excited to incorporate Kool-Aid into a fun activity with my son – yummy smelling Kool-Aid Playdough!
Sure, we could buy Playdough and be done with it, but it was more about the experience for me and Hayden. We had fun picking out the Kool-Aid packets and mixing all of the dough together. He’s loved spending time at the kitchen table playing with his Kool-Aid Playdough. This is also great for younger kids in case you have an adventurous child who wants to take a bite out of it – it’s completely edible!
– 1 Cup Flour
– 1/4 Cup Salt
– 1 Packet of Kool-Aid
– 2/3 Cup Water
– 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
– Boil the water.
– Mix flour, salt and Kool-Aid.
– Add oil to the water.
– Pour some of the water and oil mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon. Keep adding water and work dough until you like the color and it feels like playdough.
– Have fun!
