The weather has been terrible for the last week and my child has been going berserk. He’s an outdoorsy kid, so being cooped up isn’t good for him or my sanity. So I decided to make him some Play Dough to keep him busy for a while.(And since it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, I had to add a little holiday flare) Today I’m going to share with you this very simple Play Dough recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Cup of Shaving Cream
1 Cup of Cornstarch
Green Food Coloring
You are going to want to lay something over your table to protect it. (I use a shower curtain. When I’m finished I just throw it in the washing machine with a few old towels and then dry it. Here‘s a great video on how to wash your plastic shower curtain.) Then you are going to want to pour the cornstarch right on the table cloth. Next you are going to add the shaving cream and glitter. (Don’t worry about exact measurements. I honestly just guesstimated.)
Then you are going to knead the mixture for about 5 minutes. At first it will seem like you aren’t making any progress but trust me it will become dough. (I should also let you know that this is a super messy project and your kids will love it.) If the dough is too sticky add more cornstarch and if it’s too dry add more shaving cream.
Once the dough is formed, add the food coloring. When the food coloring is completely combined, enjoy!!! Let your kids have blast!!!
