I love that Rosie and Jewel could make this play dough themselves and then play with it!  Marshmallow dough is taste-safe, making it a great option for small children.  It also only takes minutes to prepare!

Method
  • Combine all of the ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until the marshmallows expand (roughly 30 seconds)

  • Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave, and combine the ingredients as much as you can using a spoon.  Then, once the ingredients are cool enough finish mixing and kneading the dough together with your hands.  Add more cornstarch as needed.

  • After a bit of mixing you will have the most delightfully squishy and stretchy play dough!  If the dough is at all sticky simply add more corn starch and mix it in.  I needed to use quite a bit of cornstarch to get rid of the stickiness from a few of the batches I made.  Repeat the above steps for each color of play dough you wish to make

Since this is our first time making this play recipe I am not really sure how long it will last, but I wouldn't imagine keeping it longer than a day or two.  Have fun!
