•1 cup of flour
•2 Tbs salt
•2 Tbs cream of tarter
•1 cup water
•2 Tbs oil - (I used canola oil, but I'm sure any edible oil would work!)
•1 3oz. pack of Jello in the color of your choice (the off-brand will work fine)
I doubled this recipe, for our group.
First, mix all your ingredients in a pan or pot.
Mix in your jello and watch it turn a bright color! This is the strawberry flavor.
After it's mixed, turn the heat to medium-high and stir constantly. Works those arm muscles!
It will start smelling great. It will also start slowly thickening and clumping together, after about 2 minutes. It's done in about 6-7 minutes. Just make sure there aren't wet areas, and it's in a ball.
Let cool. If it seems a bit sticky, add a touch more flour. It should be smooth and pliable.
Store in an airtight container or plastic bag, and it should last quite a long time.
It was a hit with the little artists!
A huge thanks to our guest speaker, John, for the lesson he shared about values, hues, and color mixing!
Our homeschool group has so many wonderful opportunities and so much support!!!
