On my hunt for ways to be frugal I found quite a few ways to make homemade play dough, some edible and others...eh, not so much. Today I'm going to tell you how to make the Jello play dough pictured above. Jello play dough is completely edible, which is good if you have younger kids that like to explore taste and textures with their mouths or dogs that will run to eat any little piece of anything that drops to the floor. It was quick and easy to do and the kids loved the whole process but especially the playing after it was done.
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 package of Jello (or generic brand) powder.
To save it you can store it in a Tupperware type container, or in a Ziploc bag with all the air squeezed out. I put it in the bag and put it in the fridge but you don't have to. If it dries out just add a little bit of water.
