When I saw this recipe over on Mom Trusted, I knew it was just what my summer grouchy kids needed. Yes, everything about it is messy but that also means everything about it your kids will adore!
It isn’t like play-dough and not quite moon sand. Something in between that is really soft and silky. The kids rolled it, shaped it, molded it and made a big mess. Luckily, it sweeps and vacuums up without any problem so don’t freak out!!! Plus, it washes off hands with just some warm water.
For me, a mess that is easy to clean up is worth it for an afternoon of kids happy, content, quiet and busy!
- 1 box corn starch
- 1 can plain shaving cream foam
- Food coloring
1. In a bowl, dump out desired amount of corn starch. I used about half a box but you can use more or less. Add about the same amount of shaving cream and a few squirts of food coloring. Use your hands to mix it together. You will probably need to add additional shaving cream to create a soft dough that doesn’t crumble too easily. If the dough dries out too much while the kids are using it, just add more shaving cream.
it worked great
