An afternoon of fun - cheap & easy - Homemade Playdough


1 cup of flour

1 cup water

2 Tbs cream of tarter

2 Tbs salt

2 Tbs vegetable oil 

1 pack of homebrand Jelly 


Mix all the ingredients in a medium saucepan on low heat and then add the jelly crystals. Once it is all mixed in turn the heat up to medium/high and stir, stir, stir!  In about 5 minutes it will thicken up and stick together.  Take it out of the saucepan and drop it onto a tray lined with baking powder to cool down.  Once it‘s cool knead it and if it‘s sticky keep adding smalls amount of flour until it‘s no longer sticky.  Then you are good to go!!  Enjoy.

You can make a few different batches with different colours and it should last a while in a air tight container...
