This Orange Play-Dough Recipe is the perfect thing when stuffed inside these cute carrot eggs! A great non-candy basket option that will soon become your favorite play-dough recipe to make!
I can’t believe Easter is just around the corner! If you are like me, you are looking for things to add to your children’s Easter Baskets that are non-candy items! My mom alone gives the boys more sugar than they need so I try to find non candy basket ideas for them.
This post contains consultant links that help support That’s What Che Said…
Supplies Needed for Play-Dough Recipe:
- Carrot Eggs (I found these great ones that stand one end at my local Dollar Tree)
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 cup salt
- 4 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
- 2 packages of unsweetened Orange Kool-Aid
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 15-20 drops of Orange Essential Oil (optional)
1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large saucepan
2. Combine the water and vegetable oil and gradually stir into the dry ingredients.
3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. When cool enough to touch, knead until smooth. Add your essential oil here if desired and knead into the dough.
This play dough is super inexpensive and is super soft! It also smells great! I rolled a ball of it and stuffed it into the carrot eggs! Perfect Easter Basket Stuffers that are not candy related!

Thanks Crystal! Yes, my kids get enough candy from other people…I don’t need to add to it :)
My kids and I just made this and they are having fun with their big ball of dough. Ours is purple, since we only had grape kool-aid in the closet. Thanks for the recipe!
