When life gives you koolaid...

Before going to a church event recently I laid out a packet of koolaid powder I intended to mix and bring to ensure our boys would have a caffeine-free drink option.

Well, we got in a hurry and the koolaid didn't get made, but the envelope sat on the corner of the counter for a couple of days.

Until somebody who's not even supposed to reach up on the counter discovered it and cut the top off!

Then the rolled-down and folded up packet sat there for a day or two more.

Finally, mama gave up on drinking koolaid (full of bad stuff anyway, right? ;) ) but felt funny wasting even a 10 cent packet.
What perfect timing to run across a blog post on koolaid playdough!  I've seen it around several times, but never made it, until now. (I halved the recipe since I only had 1 opened packet and it made plenty for all 3 boys.)
Tyler and Alan joined me in measuring, mixing, stirring and kneading and we've enjoyed our bright pink, cherry scented playdough several times now.
 I'm thinking after naptime today may be time to enjoy it again!
