Pumpkin Playdoh Party Favors

Many schools are encouraging healthy treats for parties and some are even suggesting non-food items.  I decided that I was going to make Playdoh Jack-o-Lanterns for my son's preschool class.  They were very simple and used very basic ingredients so it didn't cost me an arm and a leg either.  

  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 4 TablespoonsVegetable Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
  • 2 Tablespoons Salt
  • 2 Cups Warm Water
  • 1 6oz pakg Orange Jello
  • Small Cello Bags
  • Ribbon
  • Happy Halloween Tag
  • Black Sharpie
This is enough to do 10-12 small balls

In a medium sauce pot combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and jello.  Mix together.  Then add water and vegetable oil and whisk until all the lumps are dissolved.  
Over medium-high heat stir continuously as mixture begins to thicken.  This will take a couple of minutes
Continue stirring and folding the dough as it becomes more solid.
Remove from pan and place on wax paper to cool.
After Playdoh cools place rounded balls into the cello bag.  Attach the tag and tie the top closed with a small piece of ribbon.  Last draw a Jack-o-lantern face on the bag with a black sharpie.
