How do you make playdough lotion? 


The steps it took to create this simple homemade playdough are as follows: 


  • Set forth a bowl onto the table. 

  • Then, add 1 cup of cornstarch into the bowl. 

  • Add ½ cup of baby lotion into the bowl

  • If you’d like to add color add a very small amount of icing colors or food coloring. This is optional. 

  • Mix it all together. 

  • Remove it from the bowl and knead the dough on the table until it becomes play dough! 

  • You’ve made a 2 ingredient homemade playdough! Virtual high five!! 




How do you make playdough with flour and lotion? 


I have tried this recipe with flour in replacement of the cornstarch. 


The playdough turned out very grainy and it wasn’t as stretchy.
