  • Cornstarch

  • Lotion

  • Food Coloring


  • Add 1/2 c of lotion to a bowl. Add 1-2 drops of food coloring and mix.

  • Add 1 c of corn starch and mix well.

  • Put dough on wax paper and knead with your hands. Wear gloves so your hands don’t stain while the food coloring is incorporated.

  • Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes. It may seem sticky at first, the sticky feeling will go away after kneading. If it still remains sticky, add more corn starch.
