Playdough is winter’s best friend in our house. It’s too cold to go outside all that much, so we find ways to stay entertained all the time. Playdough is a big one here.

I making it a few times a month, not because it goes bad, but because so much ends up on the floor and then in the garbage.

Jello Play dough

I went to make playdough today and couldn’t believe when I searched my blog that I hadn’t shared this recipe. Ugh! I always search here first for recipes for my kids for couple reason. 1. No searching or racking my brain. 2. So if I haven’t shared it, once I think of it, I can share it. Jello playdough is simple, and smells so good.

Jello Playdough Recipe(My pan is a mess because this is my second batch, it’s not messy to make, I promise!)

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cream of tarter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 Jello package

Mix everything in a pan with high sides or a pot.

Keep stirring over medium heat. You don’t want to burn it.

Ready to come out of the pan. Let it cool for a few minutes, then knead it until it is smooth.

 It smells so delicious. I tend to make one for each flavor that I have in the house. And since I’m not good at making actually Jello, we tend to have packet laying around. I keep trying to make Jello.
