    When you mix up a pitcher of Kool-Aid® to drink, you add sugar to water and the packet of Kool-Aid® flavoring. This recipe uses the packet only – none of the sugar. Cooking the dough as described will yield a pliable and springy dough, but not one that’s sticky. Be sure to cook the dough until it forms a ball in the pan. Have fun!

    This playdough smells like the kool id you use!! It’s sticky, but after you play with it some it stops sticking to your hands!
