There’s been a lot of talk recently about the easy two ingredient no cook play dough, so we thought we’d give it a try!
Off we went to the supermarket to buy the one ingredient we needed, a cheap bottle of hair conditioner. We already had lots of the second ingredient, corn flour, Little Moo’s favourite messy play must have!
We also added our own (optional) third ingredient, food colouring, as Moo had requested red dough.
There are some specific recipes available advising on quantities, but we decided to just start out with a cup full of corn flour and slowly added the conditioner then mixed with our hands, and watched to see where it took us.
Moo had fun seeing how the consistency changed from slimey to smooth. And I allowed her to decide how sticky or not she wanted the finished dough to be.
By adding the food colouring at the end rather than at the start along with the conditioner, we were able to create a wonderful swirling marble effect. And Moo discovered what happened when the red colour was mixed with the white dough, “It’s turning pink!”
After mixing and exploring the textures, Moo requested her play dough tools, and began making cakes and strawberry ice cream. Yum!
The two ingredient no cook play dough was a great success! We’ll certainly be making it again and recommend you go raid your kitchen cupboard & bathroom cabinet, and give it a go! 🙂
