well in the spirit of keeping arlo as occupied as i can while we’re stuck at home during this weird time– trying to come up with (at least) one fun activity to do every day and this DIY play-doh was super simple and fun!! i was looking at so many recipes and was having trouble finding one where i actually had all the ingredients on hand.
hair conditioner (nothing fancy)
a bowl and a something to mix with
(adapted from woojr)
- mix equal part conditioner and corn starch and mix, slowly add some more corn starch and keeping mixing until you get a thick consistency
- you can add more corn starch if its too wet or more conditioner if its too dry, just keep mixing and adding until you get to that doughy texture
- separate into varying chunks so you can add different colors. add a few drops of food coloring to each and mix with your hands until blended. we started with very light pastel colors but i spent some more time adding and enhancing almost all of them to get them a little more special looking.
- store in an airtight container (we put them all together in an old tupperware)
