  • 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
  1. Mix all of your ingredients together in a saucepan. Make sure that the water is warm when you add it to the mixture.
  2. Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat on the stove until all of the lumps are gone and the consistency is smooth.
  3. Continue to stir the mixture until it starts to thicken and clump together. This will take some time, close to 10 minutes in some cases, so just keep stirring so the mixture will not stick to the bottom of the pot or burn.
  4. 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.
  5. Place the playdough mixture onto a cutting board or counter lined with flour.
  6. Let the mixture cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, knead the playdough with some extra flour until it is no longer sticky when played with.
  8. Add some St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles to your playdough mixture and knead them in well.
  9. Let little ones play with and enjoy the playdough. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
