J E L L dOugh
I have a tendency to like things on the Internet and create bookmarks with the intention of going back to them in good time, but then things happen and life gets in the way so we don't do them and they get forgotten, but not this time, this time I am doing this for 30 days. Everyday I will do a new pin project and see how it turns out. They can be anything from recipes to crafts, to things for the kids, to even taking a tutorial and trying it out for myself. I need something to get me active and this seems like a great place to start.
So today I made play dough for my son using Jello. Strawberry Jello to be exact. It smelt wonderfully and it turned out pretty great as well!! It makes a fair amount so I am thinking I will try to Kool-Aid Play dough recipe next to see which turns out better and the go from there, but it was definitely worth trying.
Here are some pictures of the process of making the Play Dough.
•white flour – 1 cup
•salt – 2 tbsp
•cream of tartar – 2 tbsp
•cooking oil – 2 tbsp
So here are two pictures of the ingredients in the bowl. One with just the dry ingredients and the other shows the ingredients with the water added. The Jello is on the bottom.
The recipe asks that you mix all the ingredients together in a bowl first. Now I don't know the reasoning behind this but I would suggest just mixing them in the pot first, then adding the pot to a low heat. Saves on dishes and it's hard to scrap all the ingredients out of the bowl, this way you are only using one dish instead of two.
