DIY Jell-O Play Dough



Everybody loves Play-Doh, but what if you made your own? This could be such a fun activity to do with the children on a lazy weekend afternoon, and it will give them something new to play with that they made themselves!

What you need:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • 1 3-ounce pack of Jell-O

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat until it thickens. It will look like a ball of dough and be difficult to stir when it's ready.
  3. Place the dough on a floured cutting board to cool.
  4. Knead, adding flour until it isn't sticky anymore (about 1/2 cup).
  5. You can add more food coloring to make the colors really pop!
  6. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It should keep for at least a week. If it starts to get sticky, just add flour. 

This recipe is a great opportunity to teach the kids cooking skills, like measuring! Let them help throughout the process from picking the color Jell-O to kneading the dough. Every family member can even make their own color!
