Kool-Aid Playdough

My boys really haven't had much interest in playdough.
All their little friends loose their minds for the stuff, but my boys have always been able to take it or leave it, with no real feeling either way.
That was up until last week of course!
We were having a bit of a rough day and in an effort to make everyone happy (or quiet!) I decided to whip up some play dough and hope for the best. I'm not too sure what was so magical about that day, but since then both boys love the stuff!
They ask to play with it at least once and day and can be caught telling people it's their favourite thing!
I know there are a million and one recipes out there to make playdough, but I thought I'd share the one I used. I didn't have any cream of tartar so I skipped it and it worked out just fine! The kool-aid makes it smell super yummy and I've read it has less chance of staining then if you use actual food colouring! I'm sure how true that is, but thought I'd pass on the rumors!

Kool Aid Playdough
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 pkg kool-aid drink mix
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup water
