If you liked the Play dough recipe I shared with you, Im sure you will love this one too! This is much lighter and more airy than the dense play dough. With just 3 ingredients and no cooking this is a quick way to keep the kids busy for a long time! This stuff was a hit! The kids loved that it was different than the play doughy they were used to playing with.
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup liquid hand soap or dish soap
2 tsp cooking oil.
a couple drops of food coloring (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
2. After everything is incorporated well (it will be kinda sticky) knead dough by hand
3. If it is too sticky add more corn starch. If it is too crumbly add a little more soap.
We made one batch with equate brand hand soap and one batch with dawn dish soap. Both batches came out good but they have slightly different consistencies. I can’t really say that I like one better than the other. You can just tell that they are a bit different. Let me know in the comments if you use a different soap and how it came out.
I put the air dough (left) next to our homemade play dough (right) so you can see the difference.
