If you find the description above unclear, fear not, we give you the extended description with step-by-step images below.
Gather up the ingredients needed and we can get going. We have baking soda, cornstarch, water, oil and food coloring. You can ditch the food coloring if you don’t feel like using it, but the playdough will look more exciting with it.
We mix the ingredients in a pan, without the food coloring it will look like this.
Quite a boring color, but we got the remedy for that, some green food coloring. The more you use, the greener will the playdough be.
When you’ve heated the mixture for a minute or two, it will look something like this. From this point it will quickly change to finished playdough. Don’t burn it.
When everything sticks to the tool you’re using, the playdough is done. It will look like this.
Remove the finished playdough from the pan, but remember that it’s hot, so you should let it cool a bit first. My finished playdough looked like this, and it’s really rubbery, just like we wanted.
Another great thing with the added oil is that it will work against the other ingredients, since they have a tendency to dry out your hands. Enjoy!
