Could Dough

I love making different types of homemade play dough with the kids. Could dough is a great boredom buster anytime of the year. But, I pulled out the Christmas, Hanukkah, and snowman cookie cutters for the kids to play with this batch of dough to prepare for the winter holidays. I used baby lotion and it smells so good. It dries out quickly so you will need to wrap it with plastic wrap prior to putting in air right container if you want to save it. Just add a little lotion if it dries too fast.

You Will Need:

2 Cups Corn Starch
1 Cup Baby Lotion no
Food Coloring (optional)

What to Do:

1. Add 1/2 cup of lotion to a bowl. Add 1-2 drops of the food coloring. Mix the lotion and food coloring until combined.

2. Add 1 cup of cornstarch and mix until combined.

3. Wear rubber gloves so your hands don’t stain. Knead the dough with your hands on wax paper. Keep kneading until it forms a dough-like consistency. If it’s still too sticky add another tablespoon of cornstarch.

4. Once your cloud dough is finished, use cookie cutters and rolling pins to play with it!

5. Store playdough in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container to help it last longer. If the dough dries out, add a few extra squirts of lotion to it and knead back in.
