Hi! Another fun kid activity!
Today I was reminded of this great activity that I have done before with my kids, but not in awhile, so we did it!!! We created Moon Dough!!!
It feels like a cross between Play-Doh and Slime. Very soft, pliable… and quick to make!
******Caution!!!! Do not let anyone eat this!!!!******
- 1 Cup Corn Starch
- 1/2 Cup hair conditioner (preferrably white or light colored)
- Food Coloring
- Measure and combine ingredients. (I made one batch for each of my kids on the video.) Make sure they are all mixed well.
- I then in my video added in an art lesson of mixing colors together. Blue and Yellow make Green. (As a side note… if it starts to get a little dry while playing add a spritz of regular water and mix together.)
- Have fun!!!!!
******This concoction should last about a week if kept in an air tight container.******
Also I remembered after we’d been playing awhile that it doesn’t like to stay together as well as traditional Play-Doh…. so if using with additional cutters and such, be prepared for a thorough washing of them after. As for my chairs, (as you can see in the pictures above are velvet at our dining table) I just took a stiff bristle brush after the dough had sat about 10 minutes and it just brushed right off. It did not leave residue behind. On the table just washed with a wet washcloth 2 times to ensure all conditioner residue was gone from the eating surface, and swept the floor. Not tooooo bad of a clean up process if you’re expecting it. 🙂 My kids enjoyed cleaning the dishes after. (Bonus activity!!!!) Actually easier clean up over all than Play-Doh in my opinion.
Now… Time to create some fun!
