A new type of play dough – Marshmallow Dough

Late last night, whilst wandering round on Facebook I came across a new type of play dough, so I went off to find out how to make it and found the instructions at a super blog – Creative Playhouse.

I was so excited about this play dough that the kids and I made it this morning, just after we had eaten our breakfast, still in our pajamas.

It is so simple, with just two ingredients: Corn Flour and Washing Up Liquid.

I have no amounts to give you for this, just be brave, get a bowl pour in some corn flour then add washing up liquid bit-by-bit until it all comes together and hey presto!

This stuff is amazing!!! The kids said it is like marshmallows and I agree with them, it is sticky and dusty at the same time. You can squidge it, roll it, stretch it and mold it. It can be pulled out into a long strand but give it a tug and it will snap in a clean straight break.

Ours got a bit dry at the end but I’m sure we could add another small squeeze of washing up liquid to reinvigorate it.

Why don’t you give it a go? Let me know if you make some and how yours turned out.
