Messy Monday #14

Yes i know its Tuesday really! 
I didn't get a chance to write this weeks Messy Monday up before now :)
 This week i finally got around to making something that i've been meaning to do forever, i first saw it on a blog last summer and noted it somewhere in my head to try out. Kool Aid playdough! 
Kool Aid is of course an American product but it is becoming increasinly available over here. I got mine from an American sweet shop.
It was really easy to make. In a bowl i mixed 1 cup of plain flour, 1/4 cup of salt and 1 pack of Kool Aid, i then filled the cup with boiling water and a tablespoon of vegetable oil. I added the water into the dry ingredaints a bit at a time, i ended up using around 3.4 of the water. Then all you need to do is give the dough a knead and let it cool. I made mine the night before so stored in an airtight bag
This stuff smells seriously amazing! 

I set out the dough with a rolling pin and a bowl full of cutters and various types of pasta. 
First up, we had to sniff the dough and have a good feel of it. 
 Seb is now starting to understand about rolling the dough out and cutting out shapes from it and spent quite a bit of time doing that, though he had to push really hard!
 He also explored the different types of pasta with the dough, looking at the different patterns they made in the dough and making them stand up in it.
 I love this photo of Alex trying to get in on the action! Don't worry he'll be involved in next weeks fun :)
