Scented ClayDough Fun

This claydough is SO fun and easy to make. It involves no cooking, and it SMELLS SO, SO YUMMY!

As you can see, the girls had a lot of fun.

( We used grape flavored Kool-Aid and Icing Colors violet.)

I adapted the recipe from one I found in The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions by John E. Thomas and Danita Pagel.


2 1/4 cups flour

1 cup salt

4 Tbs. cooking oil

1 cup water

1 packet unsweetened powder drink mix

1/4 tsp. concentrated paste food coloring


1. Combine flour, salt, and powdered drink mix in a large bowl.

2. Stir in cooking oil, water, and food coloring

3. Stir this mixture until it is the consistency of bread dough

4. Remove dough from bowl and knead on a floured surface 2-3 minutes until firm
