Here are a few more dough recipes that will add a little magic to a summer day.
KOOL-AID PLAY DOUGH
1 package Kool-Aid
1 TB. oil
½ cup salt
2 cups boiling water
2-3 cups flour
Mix the first four ingredients together. Slowly stir in the flour until a smooth consistency. Store in a zip bag.
3 cups flour
1 cup salt
¼ cup Joy dish detergent
1 ¼ cup water (approximately)
Mix all ingredients together. Store in a zip bag or covered container.
2 cups white glue
1 ½ cups water
2 level tsp. Borax soap
1 cup hot water
Combine the glue, 1 ½ cups water, and food coloring. Set aside. In another large bowl, dissolve the Borax in the cup of hot water. Slowly stir the glue mixture into the Borax. It will coagulate and be difficult to mix. Pour off the excess water, then let it sit for several minutes. Drain off the remaining water. Store flubber covered in the refrigerator when it is not being used.
Note! Borax is toxic and should not be used with younger children.
1 cup cornstarch
½ - ¾ cup water
Place 1 cup cornstarch in a bowl. Slowly stir in enough water (½ cup to ¾ cup) to make a thick liquid. Hold the goop in your hand, then turn your hand over and let it run back into the bowl. How is it like a liquid? How is it like a solid?
Use two parts glue to one part liquid starch. Pour starch into the glue a little at a time. Mix well. Add more starch if needed so mixture is not sticky. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
* Add food coloring if you desire.
