Well it appears we are on a snow man theme! Yesterday we whipped up a batch of cornstarch dough and used it to make the most adorable snowmen you have have ever seen! This dough is simple! Although this recipe requires cooking, it only takes about 5 minutes.
In a small sauce pan mix 1/3 cup baking soda, and 2/3 cup salt in with1/3 cup water and bring it to a boil. Next take a small bowl and combine 1/2 cup cornstarch with 1/4 cup water. After the salt mixture has reached a boil remove it from heat and add it to the cornstarch mixture. Stir it up (it will take a couple of minutes) and let it cool, then you are ready to play!
Some other ideas of objects to add to the dough might be, toothpicks, feathers, leaves, pipe cleaners, buttons, metal washers, corn kernels or beans.
This is the first time we have ever used this recipe but if you have any questions about it feel free to ask.
