Wonder dough is similar to traditional play dough, only it magically changes consistencies during play.  How cool is that??!  This dough recipe also only requires two ingredients & no cooking!

Wonder Dough Recipe
Method
How cool is that you can make play dough from paint? These two simple ingredients make such a FUN and amazing dough for kids!  All you have to do is add the desired amount of corn starch to a bowl.  Then, slowly add washable paint in small amounts & mix

Continue to add more paint & mix until the desired consistency is reached

Using your hands will help make the mixing process easier and faster, but you will want to wash your hands once the dough is almost done being mixed.  This step is important, as the mixing is sticky and messy and you need clean hands to finish the kneading process.

Once washed, dry your hands and mix just a little more.  You will then be left with the most amazing play dough

If your dough is a tad dry or crumbly just mix a drop or two of water in to finish the dough off.  The paint may tinge hands with color during play, but as long as you use washable paint the color will wash right off!


One really cool thing about WONDER dough is that you can add varying amounts of paint to the corn starch each time you make it to get different dough consistencies.  Different brands of paint will also produce different doughs.  We have had so much fun exploring with these ingredients to make different dough textures.  Some are really OOZE-y & transform in texture as kids play.  Some are more dough-like and act much like traditional play dough. 


 All of them are loads of fun!

The oozing doughs are mold-able and hold their form while being played with, but once tiny hands are left still they slowly melt, turning to a liquid-like dough.  Such great fun!  For a more traditional play dough use less paint.  To get the OOZE use more or add a touch of water to your recipe.  It is also fun to experiment with different paint varieties.  

Really, just play with these ingredients and see what FUN doughs you and the kids can whip up!  All of them are SO FUN!  And the best part, these WONDERful doughs take seconds to make!
