Silky & Stretchy Play Dough
Do your children love play dough? Here how to make silky and stretchy play dough using only 2 ingredients at home with your little one. It’s so easy to make that your child will love to get involved in the making process.
To make this silky and stretchy play dough you will need
1 cup conditioner (cheaper the better)
2 cups corn flour/cornstarch
Food Coloring & Glitter (optional)
How to make it:
It was a great change for them to squeeze the contents of the conditioner out of the bottle with their little fingers and talk about measuring it to a given line (1 cup mark).
Adding the 2 1/4 cups of corn flour into a bowl with the conditioner will give them the opportunity to use those larger arm muscles and mix the 2 ingredients together. Obviously corn flour can vary. If you find your dough crumbly then add a teaspoon more conditioner. If it’s too damp, add a teaspoon more corn flour. You may need to tweak the recipe slightly.
Of course you could divide the play dough and add a few drops of food coloring or glitter; however, I loved the silkiness of the stark white. This fragrant play dough was perfect for little fingers.
Storing play dough
This lovely play dough can be kept for a number of weeks/months, depending on how well it is stored. I recommend, like with any play dough, wrap it very tightly with a few layers of cling wrap and store it in an air-tight container out of direct light.
