About

Thank you for your interest in making play doh for kids at The Family Partnership! This is a pretty easy project you can do with children, friends, family and/or your civic group. Feel free to make as much or little as you want. The kids in therapy and at our two preschool centers use it nearly every day, so we go through dozens of batches a month.

  2. In a medium-size pot, mix oil and water and then mix in the kool-aid until it dissolves.
  3. Add dry ingredients to wet and cook on medium-high heat, stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball. It should be soft but not runny or stick to your hands.
