On the off-chance that I'm not the last person on earth to do this with Kool-Aid - here`s the recipe. You're welcome.

I'm not sure how we ended up with a dozen packages of Kool-Aid at the back of the cupboard - we honestly, truly, never drink this stuff. I suspect they may have come with my husband when I salvaged him from the Bachelor Pad more than a dozen years ago (which really speaks volumes about the state of the top shelf in my cupboard).

They're getting put to good use though! (and apparently have no expiration date for this particular use)

Note to self: Self - when the dust settles in the new year you really have to try dying yarn with this stuff.


1 cup flour : 1 cup salt : 2 tbsp cream of tartar : 2 tbsp cooking oil : 1 cup water mixed with Kool-Aid (for colour and scent - but you could also just use food colouring)

Combine ingredients and put on medium heat in saucepan. Stir until dough pulls away from the sides. Remove and knead until smooth. Then store in airtight container.

I find it interested that, no less than yesterday, I went out and bought a couple of packages of Kool-Aid for just such a project. Ah, indoor winter fun!
