Pudding Slime/ Play-dough

This past week for science we did a small project….Pudding Slime/ Play-dough.

We started out with the intent of making slime but in the end it was more like playdough.

First we only used 3 ingredients.

Add the instant pudding mix to 1/2 of the corn starch.  Next add the warm water.  The mixture will be very sticky at this point.  Start to slowly add the other 1/2 of the corn starch mixture.  Once it gets hard to mix with a spoon go ahead and kneed it by hand.  If your slime seems a little dry just add a tiny bit more water.

I have also read another play-dough recipe that calls for just 2 ingredients.
1 pudding cup
1/2 to 1 cup of corn starch

Start by adding the pudding cup with just 1/2 cup of corn starch.  As you start mixing you can determine how much more corn starch you want to add.

If stored in a Ziploc bag the play-dough should last 2 to 3 days.

Hope you and your kiddos enjoy these slime/ play-dough recipes as much as we did!  🙂

(NOTE: As my boys played with the slime/ play-dough it did get a bit sticky so we just sprinkled a little corn starch on the table.)
