I have 2 little children, and it’s winter. So, I decided to make the kids play dough. I usually try to avoid the stuff because my kids make a mess with everything, but I made this recipe for them a few months ago, and they did really well with it. It’s got more of a rubbery consistency, so it didn’t crumble like a lot of the other homemade kinds we’ve tried.
It’s SO easy to make! It just consists of baking soda, cornstarch, and water.
You put it in a pan, stir it together, then turn up the heat.
When it boils it will come together like a mashed potato consistency. It takes about 4-5 minutes.
Then when it’s all thick, just put on some wax paper.
From here, divide them up into a few different balls, and add food coloring to them.
My kids love play dough, and the house already needs to be cleaned, so I’m going to be easy going today!
