Jelly Playdough

This week Master E and I decided to try out a new recipe for Playdough. He loves cooking and this one was so simple. Here is the link

We followed these instructions


  • white flour – 1 cup
  • salt – 2 tbsp
  • cream of tartar – 2 tbsp
  • cooking oil – 2 tbsp
  • warm water – 1 cup
  • Jelly – 1 pack ( We used aeroplane blue lemonade jelly)


    • Add all the ingredients together in a big mixing bowl
    • Mix all the ingredients together until consistent
    • Pour into a pan and stir continuously over medium heat
    • Wait for it to thicken into a big ball and then place it on a piece of wax paper to cool
    • Kneed it for a few minutes once cooled

Master E loves cooking, here he is with the ingredients ready to get started.

Lots of fun was had tipping the ingredients in. 
There was plenty of oppotunity to touch after putting in each new ingredient and talking about what things felt like.

Some stirring.

Adding the jelly crystals.

Loving pouring in the water!

Lots more stirring and talk of lumpy and wet.

What our playdough looked like before being cooked.

Starting to come together.

Hot, fresh from the saucepan.

All kneaded and ready for play. It smells great as it has taken on the scent and colour from the jelly.

This made a small amount of playdough, but it looks and smells fabulous. Looking forward to having a play with it!
