This is a simple playdough recipe that uses jello to color and provide texture. The jello makes it sound tasty, but I don’t recommend trying to eat it!

The final result of this playdough recipe (when it comes to color anyway) really depends on your jello. Choose jello with alot of color for a better result.
Let’s begin with ingredience assembly. Here we have cream of tartar, flour, salt, water, oil and jello.
Pour all ingredients into a pan.
Mix the ingredients together. I used a Kiwi jello, since that was what I had in my cabinet. It didn’t do much for color, as you can see.
I decided to add some food coloring, to make it look a bit more fun.

Here’s how the homemade playdough should look when finished. All doughy and nice.
The end result should look like the playdough on the image below. Enjoy!
This playdough contains salt, something that usually means dry hands after handling it, but the oil actually counteracts that really well.
