Soapy Dough Recipe

I shared this post over at Today's Creative Blog on July 26th and want to share it with all of you.

As Miss P gets older, I am trying to figure out more and more fun activities for her to do.
If they can be something that I can make from items I already have in my pantry that is even better!! 

Today, I am sharing a recipe to make your own Soapy Dough.

This is so easy and only requires a few ingredients.

Here is how you can make some for your kiddos.

-2 cups Flour
-1/2 cup Salt
-1 Tablespoon of liquid soap
-6-8 drop of food coloring

-Mix flour, salt, liquid soap and food coloring together in a small bowl or a baggie.
-To make different color doughs, leave out the food coloring and separate the dough after you add water and then knead in the food coloring.

Slowly add water until a workable dough is formed.
The amount of water will vary depending on the brand of liquid soap used.

If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.

Now it is time to play!! 

Mold the dough just as you would any other type of dough or clay.

Create a little bird.

And place it in a nest with some eggs.

Or sculpt an alligator like the first photo above! 
The skies the limit!! 

And clean up is super easy too!! 
Just use a wet paper towel to wipe the table top off and since there is soap in it, it comes right clean! 

Store your dough in a zip lock bag or a plastic storage container for another day.

Hope you make some!!
