How to Make Playdough Using Jello
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot, whisking until blended.
Place the pot over medium heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
When the dough comes together as a ball and the liquid has absorbed, transfer the dough to waxed, freezer, or parchment paper.
While the dough is still warm but cool to touch, knead the dough until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two months or at room temperature for 3 days.
