Heres what I did.

  1. Add two parts (I did 4 cups) shaving cream and one part (2 cups) of corn starch into a large bowl. Lightly knead together until it is completely mixed.
  2. Once it is complete mixed together, add one splash of water at a time until you get a fluffy play dough like consistency.
  3. Add in corn starch or shaving cream if needed. If it is too crumbly, add a bit of shaving cream. If its too sticky, add some cornstarch!
  4. Lastly I split the dough into equal parts and I added one drop of food coloring, add in as much as you want to get your desired color!


I did notice that after playing with it for about 20 minutes it began to dry up a little bit. Simply running it quickly under a bit of water and kneading the moisture back in did the trick!

I would love to hear if you try this super simple recipe at home!
