In one of our groups (I can't remember which one) someone was wanting this recipe. I knew I had one, but couldn't find it. AHAH! I found it. I have made this several times for kids for Christmas and Birthday gifts. I usually put it in an old peanut butter jar (washed of course)and attach something fun to play with w/it (i.e. different shades of green and brown with a side of "Army Dudes" or color scheme of beige, pink and fuschia w/a single or several dollar store cookie cutters. You can add things like glitter too! It has great possibilities! Use your imagination!

How to Make Jello Playdough

Step-by-Step

  1. I got this recipe from: homemadeginger.com/...fect-play.html

    First, mix all your ingredients in a medium saucepan.
  2. Mix in your jello and watch it turn a bright color! It will start smelling great.
  3. In about 2 minutes it will also start slowly thickening and clumping together... Cook for about 6 minutes or so; until it is in a ball and there aren't any wet areas left.
  4. Once it's done,take it out and plop in on some waxed paper to cool.
  5. Once it's cool, you may want to knead it with a little flour if it seems sticky. I had to do this with a few of the colors that I made, and some not.
