We had so much fun with our “Is it a solid or liquid?’ experiment, that I just couldn’t wait to find more fun sensory play ideas using cornstarch.
Introducing Bubble Dough!
I first heard about Bubble Dough through a pin by Creative Playhouse, and I just had to try it! I chose not to add the oil she suggested to make the “better version” her post was about. But I definitely went with adding the glitter!
Our bubble dough was made with 1 cup of cornstarch and 1/2 cup of shampoo. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup of liquid dish soap, but said that Dawn dish soap sometimes doesn’t work right…and since I use Dawn at home, I thought I’d try substituting some shampoo.
Shampoo worked great! Plus, if you use a scented shampoo it turns out smelling nice!
It is also VERY stretchy.
Eventually some of the animals from our collection made it to our play.
I think cornstarch is quickly becoming one of our favorite ingredients for sensory play fun. I’ve already got a few more ideas of things to try mixing with it….
Have you created any fun sensory doughs using cornstarch?
