Yesterday I tried something new with Maia and her friend, Marlise. We were planning to makeÂ a new batch of theÂ Playclay (play dough) recipe from Kohl's First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos, but realized at the last minute that we didn't have enough cream of tartar. We had all the ingredients for the Rubbery Flubbery Dough thoughÂ (salt, corn starch, and water) so decided to make that instead.
FirstÂ Maia and MarliseÂ mixed the cornstarch and water together.
I boiled water and salt over the burner, then added the cornstarch mixture.
We let it cool, kneaded it, and then tried playing with it.
The dough was definitely rubbery andÂ flubbery, but was very sticky and didn't stay together properly. Perhaps I didn't cook it long enough. The kids didn't mind though, as you can see above!Â
