    If anyone has great playdough recipes to swap, post them here!


    Make stretchy dough. It’s a homemade version of silly putty. You will need: small cups (like plastic yogurt cups) for each child, Liquid starch, glue, and popsicle sticks. Instructions, pour about a 1/4 cup of starch in cups, give each child about 1/3  cup of glue in a small paper cup. Help children slowly pour the glue into the starch as they stir. The glue will start to bind together and turn into one big clump. There will be starch left over. Throw it away. Have the children take the clump from the cup and squeeze, shape, pull and stretch. It can be stored in zip lock plastic bags in the frig for 2 or 3 days. Have fun!

    I have made home-made play dough with hair conditioner and corn starch. It’s super easy but the corn starch can make it pretty messy so I’d suggest making it outside!

    Mix in a big bowl 1 cup conditioner (any brand, color, etc. we used scented so it smelled really good!) and 2 cups corn starch. Stir until it becomes crumbly then you’ll have to work it with your hands to squish it together to make it a play dough substance! It ends up being really soft, silky, and smells good! The kids love it!


    Fun recipe! Thanks for sharing.  I was excited to try it out.  It really does smell good!
