Hello! I am so excited for this awesome opportunity to be guest posting! And I am equally as thrilled to be sharing one of my all time favorite play dough recipes with you!
 This Homemade Play Dough recipe is SO much fun! It is stretchy and SUPER silky smooth! I have never met a kid who does not LOVE this play dough! I even had a great time playing with this!!
This is such a fun change up to the usual play dough recipes. Plus- it smells GREAT and makes your hands nice and smooth!!
Most play dough recipes are stinky and make your hands either chalky, powdery, or oily and sticky!
So, needless to say I love the idea of having smooth, delicious smelling hands after playing play dough.

With only 3 ingredients (4 if you choose to use glitter) it is easy enough for any age child in your family to participate!

  • 2 cups Cornstarch
  • Food Coloring (My conditioner was pink- so I used 3-4 drops of pink food coloring to make it a little more vibrant.)
  • Glitter (Optional)

  • Combine  cornstarch and conditioner in a large bowl

  • Keep mixing until ingredients are well blended.
  • Knead with your hands until you have a smooth consistency.
  • After about 1-2 minutes of mixing, the ingredients will combine to make the most silky smooth play dough imaginable!!!!
