To make this silky and stretchy play dough you will need

  • 1 cup conditioner (cheaper the better)
  • 2  cups cornflour/cornstarch (or 2 ¼ cups)
  • Glitter (optional)

Yep, that’s it!
Obviously cornflour can vary from country to country. If you find your dough crumbly then add a teaspoon more conditioner. If it’s too damp, add a teaspoon more cornflour. You may need to tweak the recipe slightly.

Storing play dough
This lovely play dough can be kept for a number of weeks/months, depending on how well it is stored. I recommend, like with any play dough, wrap it very tightly with a few layers of cling wrap and store it in an air-tight container out of direct light.

For something a little more interesting you might like to add coloured glitter to your child’s play dough experience.

Some common recipes can make quite stiff play dough, however, this is lovely and soft, leaving a gorgeous fragrance from the conditioner.
