I have previously shared this textured play-dough recipe made for small toddlers and since came across the best recipe ever!!! This one is beautifully smooth and shiny with a texture that resembles fondant and the best thing is it smells great and works for all ages.
You will need:
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 cup flour (plus 1/2 for kneading afterwards)
- 2 Tablespoons cooking oil
- 2 Tablespoons salt
- 1 Sachet (2 Tablespoons) Cream of Tartar
- 1 Packet of Jelly (Jello)
Mix everything except for the extra 1/2 cup and stir over medium heat until the texture becomes like play- dough.
When you have the desired texture, let it cool down on a floured plate.
Knead and keep on sprinkling flour until it doesn’t stick to your hands anymore. The amount of extra flour adds up to about 1/2 cup.
The colors are stunning and light when you use only the jelly. This was a blue jelly that ended up in a mint colour that I actually loved.
For this previous batch I added red coloring to a yellow jelly and this is the color that we ended up with. This one was stirred over high heat and ended up in a very stiff and crumbly play-dough which is not as nice as when its done over medium heat so keep it down!!
