Today I'm reviewing two different play dough recipes. I tried a kool-aid play dough recipe for the first time and am going to compare it to the recipe I always use. :)
Kool-Aid Play Dough
Regular Play Dough Recipe
The kool-aid recipe cooked in about 2 minutes, while the other took about 8 minutes. While cooking, the regular recipe was very soupy compared to the kool-aid one. The yield on both was similar, the regular stuff had just a little more. Also the regular play dough had a better consistency. The kool-aid type is a little bit 'gritty' in comparison, but if you only make the kool-aid type you probably won't notice.
The kool-aid color evened out after the kids played with it a bit but it still wasn't as bright as the other. Maybe try two packets of kool-aid. :)
Overall, I think both recipes were great. The kool-aid one is simpler, and faster. The regular one is smoother and brighter. They both worked well in our little play dough 'pasta' machine, and this stuff is a lot cheaper than the store-bought play-dough. If you have your own recipes, feel free to share!
