I love that this recipe does not require cooking!  I simply do not have time for that these days.  I also love that you do not need cream of tartar. The Kool-aid vibrantly colors the dough & also gives it a delightful scent!  

How fun!  This recipe is also taste-safe, making it great for kids of all ages.
