Kids absolutely love playing with anything squishy, doughy, and moldable. But you don't have to stick with modeling clay bought from a store. Learning how to make Kool-Aid play dough makes treating your kid to sweet-smelling sensory play easier than ever. Plus, there are tons of different recipes to try out so you can pick a favorite.
Much like the DIY slime craze, these homemade play-dough recipes encourage your kid to learn a ton of lessons during playtime. Reading ingredient lists, measuring, and following directions are some of the lessons older kids can learn when going through these different recipes. Younger kids, meanwhile, can enjoy some awesome sensory play with the sweetly scented, pliable dough that results. As a bonus, some of these recipes are literally good enough to eat, so it's no big deal if your kid takes a little taste during play time.
These dough recipes are super fun for your kid to play with alone, but I could see these going over very well at play dates and birthday parties, too. For kids who are connoisseurs of all things messy, squashy, and moldable, these dough recipes are sure to delight. And chances are, you'll have a good bit of fun playing with them, too.
