Jello produces vibrantly colored play dough that smells absolutely AMAZING!  The gelatin in the Jello gives the dough a silky-smooth & ultra stretchy texture.  Try mixing flavors to create your own fruity combinations, and if your kids love this activity also be sure to check out our Kool-aid play dough recipe.
