Playdough lovers may enjoy this variation based on the powdered drink, Kool-Aid. The result is a non-toxic dough that the user can shape and form like the play modeling clay. It will have the scent of the flavor of Kool-Aid, and won't hurt the child that eats some of it. Any dough not used immediately can be placed in a container and stored in a refrigerator. It should last for weeks.
