kiddo fun: Strawberry No Cook Playdough

Strawberry No Cook Playdough | @mamamissblog #sensory #simpleactivity #playdough


I first came across this no-cook playdough concoction on Play Create Explore as ice cream dough, back in January of last year.  I have since seen it everywhere including the recent virality of this play dough recipe on Kids Activities Blog.  I thought, what better time to pull out the ingredients I purchased so long ago.  When I first saw Play Create Explore’s post last year I found this fun kids hair conditioner that was scented in a strawberry scent that I thought would be super fun for this.  And it was – introducing our Strawberry No Cook Playdough!

2 cups corn starch

1 cup strawberry scented hair conditioner

2-3 drops of red food coloring


mini silicone baking cups


metal cookie cutters



Blend all ingredients together in a bowl – combine until soft.

That’s it – easy peasy!  I also set out mini baking cups, some candles, and cookie cutters for V&T (it happened to be their Uncle’s birthday that day so we posted a pic to his Facebook page of our cupcake playdough yumminess they created for him :)

And, when they are done playing, just store it in a sealed Ziploc for later play :)
