Homemade Bubble Dough (not like playdough)

Amy Alusa


This dough is a great tool to encourage kids creativity too (as well as play dough). This dough has a much different feel and consistency. It is elastic and stretchy like silly putty, but much softer. It's a great sensory material for young ones to feel and work with. I really like it. You can add sprinkles or color to this as well.

1 c
corn starch or corn flour
2 Tbsp
dish soap or washing up (liquid hand) soap
2 tsp
olive or cooking oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Add the ingredients slowly, knead well; and if it's too sticky, add more flour, if its too crumbly add more liquid.
If you have tried this and it doesnt work, try using handsoap or shower gel instead. People have reported issues using Dawn dish soap in particular.
