Best Jello Cookies

As the weather is getting warmer in AZ, we have to offer more and more activities indoors. My son had so much fun helping me with these jelly cookies. It was one of our favorite activities. He keeps begging me to do the “jeylo playdough and cookies!”
The advantage of this recipe is that you can turn it into homemade play dough. Wash the children’s hands (and the countertop of course) and then let their imagination run wild!
