Moon Dough

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!!!!******

Supplies:

  • 1 Cup Corn Starch
  • 1/2 Cup hair conditioner (preferrably white or light colored)
  • Food Coloring

Instructions:

  1. Measure and combine ingredients. (I made one batch for each of my kids on the video.) Make sure they are all mixed well.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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!

I am a mom of 2, wife, and am always looking to create something myself instead of buying it. I met Katy from Little Katy Bugs after becoming a mom, and we both love to craft, both have active families, and a tactful way of telling others what we truly think. I LOVE THAT!!! Art is subjective and so is crafting. So, you may not love everything we make or do, but our goal is to inspire you to create yourself and make things that you will LOVE! We do still sell some of our crafts on the site, at craft fairs, and Katy now participates in a booth store front. Check out our Facebook page for more on the booth. Sometimes we just need inspiration and camaraderie. I hope we can help provide those things to you. Sincerely Donna Beth, a Co-Blogger of www.LittleKatyBugs.com
