Kid's Craft: Homemade Jello Playdough

I'm not a fan of regular play-dough, it is messy and does not come out of clothes very easily. I like to find ways to make things like play-dough out of items in my kitchen, not only is it easier to clean up but you know exactly what is in it. I have made play-dough before, this is the second recipe that I have tried. 


Original Site: Jello Play-dough Recipe

For this recipe you'll need:
-Cream of Tartar
-White Flour
-Jello Packet
-Warm Water
-Cooking Oil

For the recipe click on the link from the original site or the Pin link.

One thing that was great about this recipe was that my daughter was able to participate in making the play-dough, not just playing with the play-dough. She loved mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl and seeing the color start happening. The only thing that she could not help with was cooking it on the stove.

In the past I have made play-dough colored with food dye, with this one the jello colors the play-dough. What this means is that you do not have to worry about the dye getting on your hands, the first few times you use the play-dough. Big Plus!!
