Kool – Aid Playdough Activities for Kids


Playdough is a wonderful “toy” that can be used for a differentiated set of ages. It works well by itself or with manipulatives. Neat!

It’s also a wonderful indoor activity especially on a rainy or snowy day. Add a touch of natural scent and your playdough will turn into something amazing! 


For example, make a pumpkin scented playdough and watch your child create pumpkins out of playdough or a pretend pumpkin patch.


Add some of your child’s toys within the playdough and watch them create something magical. For example, my daughter made a playdough dress on one of her princess dolls. 


There are so many different ways to go about playing and enjoying homemade playdough.


It is one of those open ended moldable toys that comes with so many benefits.

Play dough Storage Ideas


Believe it or not, it stores very well – we store ours for a little over 6 months. Or unless I start to notice it has hardened and formed a sort of dry playdough, then maybe that’s a sign that it’s a good time to throw it away! 


Great storage ideas would be in ziplock bags or a container. Remove the air within the storage bag/container and make sure it is shut tight.


This process will allow for a longer, maintained and well kept homemade playdough! 


Hope you give this playdough recipe a try! It’s sure to cause lots of fun and giggles!
