Best Jello Cookies


As the weather gets hotter in AZ we have to come up with more and more activities to do inside. My son had SO much fun helping me with these jello cookies. It was one of our favorite activities together. He keeps begging to make the “jeylo playdough and cookies!”



The nice thing about this recipe is you can turn it into homemade playdough. Wash the kids hands (and counter of course) and then let the kids imaginations go wild!

Carson had so much fun smashing the dough and building BIG towers with all the colors.

Once he was tired of playing with the dough we rolled them into balls and dipped them in the jello sugar.
