All kids love to play with play dough, and you can make this soft and sweet smelling play dough at home. If your children are old enough to not be putting their creations in their mouths then this soft play dough is just about the easiest to make.
You just need 2 ingredients - 1 part hair conditioner and 2 parts corn flour - that's it!
If you don't have corn flour at home in your cupboards then you'll find it in the baking section at the supermarkets - Asda, Tesco and Morrisons all sell it for 75p for a 250g packet.
As for the conditioner, just try it with whatever you have at home first, then if you like it you can buy a store's own value range very cheaply. This is so soft and smells so much better than regular Play-Doh!
Conditioners vary in consistency, so you may find that you need to alter the ratios a little to get it right, but you should end up with a fluffy, light and airy type of dough, a little like moon dough as well as play dough.
You can add food colouring or glitter for fun too. Just remember that this is not edible, so keep it away from toddlers who still try to eat everything! So, fancy making some with the kids this weekend?
