Silky Soft Play Dough Recipe

Ingredients:

 

Directions:

  1. The ratio for our cupcake dough is 2:1. Measure 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup of conditioner into your bowl and mix together until it forms a smooth ball. You may need to add more conditioner if your dough isn’t coming together. Keep mixing and it will form a ball!

  2. Separate your dough into as many balls as you have food coloring. We wanted to have white, purple, and teal dough so we made three separate balls. Add one of the dough balls to your bowl and add in your food coloring until it’s your desired color.
