Pomegranate and Tangerine Play Dough

I don't remember where I saw the recipe for this, but I decided to make cornstarch and soap play dough.

What you'll need:

a bowl
soap (we used Dial brand Pomegranate & Tangerine 7.5 oz bottle)
a tray and toys of choice (this is how we choose to play)

After my son got tired of pumping the soap I took the top off so he could just pour it in the bowl.

We added about equal amount of cornstarch to soap. Maybe a little more cornstarch than soap as my son wanted to add the cornstarch himself.

At this point I took over mixing for my son. The mixture turned into a frosting like consistency, then my son added more cornstarch. It then turned into a dough. It was totally different than play dough. It felt silky like soft toffee without the stickiness. It smelled lovely.

We played for over an hour.


  1. I've never heard of play dough like this before. We'll have to give it a try!

  2. I loved the consistancy of it...and it smelled divine... We had a lot of fun with it!

  3. Tangerine???? This looks amazing!! pinning!

  4. Melissa, I liked this more than regular play dough. I was please with how it turned out! Hope you and Julia are able to try it sometime. Have a great day! Rachel :)

  5. What an awesome idea. My daughter loves scented things and also loves Playdoh. This look like a surefire hit we will have to try, thanks:)
