So I tried yet another homemade play dough recipe the other day. But this one was better than any I’ve tried before- as close to the “real” thing as I think you can get. It even works in those silly play dough machines. I saw it on pinterest and checked it out at Modern Parents Messy Kids. Click here for the full post and recipe instructions. Here’s what you’ll need:
1 c flour
1 c warm water
2 T salt
2T cream of tartar
2T cooking oil
1-3 oz pack of Jello
It all goes into the pot, gets mixed thoroughly, and cooked. Then cool and knead. If you’ve made cooked play dough before, you know the drill. If not, make sure you check out MPMK for the full tutorial.
I tried it with unflavored gelatin (like Knox) as well, and it turned out just as wonderful. Use 1-1oz package or 1 Tablespoon if you’ve bought it in bulk like I have.
This is now my go-to recipe! Hope you like it as much as I do.
