Softest Play Dough EVER!

Since the Play-Doh you buy at the store contains Gluten, it was not an option for us to use.  I went in search of a gluten-free recipe for play dough. I think I have tried every recipe you can find on Pintrest, with many epic fails! I finally found a recipe through my daughter’s early education class.

This is the easiest, and cheapest recipe I have found. It’s also the softest EVER!

 

Softest Play Dough

1 Part hair conditioner (I used Dove since I know its safe for my daughter, however you can use any kind you find at the Dollar Store)

2 Parts Cornstarch

Mix until combined. Stays fresh in a zip lock bag for about a week.
