The wonders of homemade playdough.

The real wonder of playdough is how everyone wants to play with it! Just make the dough and watch how adults and older children are also attracted to this “in the moment” sensory activity. Kneading, squashing, squeezing and rolling brings calm and enjoyment to all ages!

Fluffy Playdough

  • 1 cup cheap hair conditioner
  • 2 cups cornflour
  • Food colouring and essential oil (optional)

What to do:

Cloud Dough

  • 2 Cups Plain Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Baby Oil
  • Food colouring and essential oil (optional)

What to do:

  • Just mix together for a loose dough that can be pressed together like damp sand and moulded into shapes. (you can add more baby oil if you prefer it to stick together more)
