This no-cook bubble dough was fun to make from just a few ingredients – and it had an amazing fragrance!
So I’ll be honest – I actually wanted some pump dispensers for another activity, so bought some liquid hand soap from the dollar store. But it pained me to just pour it all away without using it, so I decided to make bubble dough! I’d seen recipes that use shampoo or dish soap, but then I read a post from Creative Playhouse that suggested hand soap or shower gel could be used.
So here’s what I used to make the dough:
- 1/2 cup berry-scented liquid hand soap
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 2 tsp oil
- Fine glitter (optional, but why wouldn’t you?)
You can make bubble dough without the oil but apparently it makes it softer and stretchier, so that sounded like it was worth including to me!
Here’s a quick video showing how I made it:
F had a good time pulling, pushing and working with this dough. It wasn’t like our normal homemade play dough, but it’s useful that this is a no-cook recipe so that my son could help me make it.
