Wonder Dough

**Disclaimer** This get's messy!! And we all know that I am totally fine with that! But if you aren't, that's okay. The paint we used is completely washable, and the colored hands in the mean time were so much fun!! So keep reading…

Wonder Dough from Growing a Jeweled Rose (aka - "Awesome Color Your Hands Dough")

What You Need:

  • Cornstarch
  • Washable paint
  • Glass bowl and spoon (we used glass simply because it's easy to clean and it doesn't interfere with the color visual)
What To Do:
  1. Scoop and large spoonful of cornstarch into a glass bowl
  2. Start by squeezing a small amount of paint into the bowl and mixing it with the cornstarch. Keep adding paint until it becomes the desired consistency. You want it to be pliable and not crumbly. 
That's it! You can mold it, squish it, flatten it and roll it. Just keep in mind that the paint color will transfer to whatever you use with it, but a simple washing should be all it takes to clean. I might be sure not to use wooden utensils so the paint doesn't stain. 

We didn't make enough to try and keep, so we left it out to see what happened. They next morning Busy's "statue" had hardened like clay! Next time we will store some in an air-tight container and let you know what happens :)
