I love making themed playdough recipes for various holidays. This edible, cooked playdough recipe can be adapted for any holiday! I used green jello for St. Patrick’s Day playdough, but you could use any color Jello for all the different holidays. My rainbow jello recipe would also be a fun snack pairing for this activity or try the over the rainbow jello treats for St. Patrick’s Day. You could also use Kool-Aid to make Kool Aid playdough or even bubble bath playdough! The options are endless.
Green Jello Cooked Playdough Recipe
This edible cooked playdough recipe uses basic ingredients that you likely have on hand. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 box Lime green Jello
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp. Vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp. Salt
- 2 ½ tbsp. Cream of tartar
- St. Patrick’s Day themed sprinkles
Jell-O Gelatin Dessert, Lime, 3 ozPillsbury Best All Purpose Flour, 5 lb.Crisco, Pure Vegetable Oil, 48 ozMorton Iodized Salt, 26 oz, Pack of 2Frontier Cream of Tartar, 3.52 Ounce BottleMini Shamrock Sprinkles, 2.6 Ounces
Begin by mixing all of your ingredients together in a saucepan. Make sure that the water is warm when you add it to the mixture.
Then, stir the mixture constantly over medium heat on the stove until all of the lumps are gone and the consistency is smooth.
Keep stirring the mixture until it starts to thicken and clump together. This will take some time, close to 10 minutes in some cases, so just continue stirring so the mixture will not stick to the bottom of the pot or burn.
When you can no longer stir the mixture anymore, and it has formed one big lump that does not stick to your finger, remove it from the heat.
Place the playdough mixture onto a cutting board or counter lined with flour.
Let the mixture cool completely. Once it has cooled, knead the playdough with some extra flour until it is no longer sticky when played with.
Add some St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles to your playdough mixture and knead them in well.
Now it’s playtime! Let your kiddos play with the jello playdough. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or more. Use St. Patrick’s Day cookie cutters for extra fun!
