Pink Lemonade Playdough

We're at it again... making more play dough.  This time, the kids wanted to experiment with scent so we thought we'd make this Pink Lemonade Playdough.  It smells so good.  Even I was having a hard time not eating it.  

We really started with our basic play dough recipe then added some Crystal Light packets we had left over from our Skinny Raspberry Lemonade Cake.  You can also use a Kool-aid packet, but this is what we had.  I love the feeling of this cooked play dough; it's so much like the original.  And the color and smell this this one a winner for Valentine's Day!
