Looking for a fun craft idea to keep kids busy?
Finding new activities for kids to stay busy and entertained from home can be tough, and gathering supplies can get costly and usually requires another trip outside the house.
While looking for a way to keep her toddlers busy, Hip2Save reader, Varsha, found an easy and simple way to turn ingredients she already had in the house into play-dough!
“During this situation, “stay home, stay safe“ my toddlers and I are getting bored at home so I found this idea to make homemade Play-Doh in 2 minutes at home. The kids stay busy and get to make something creative.
With only 2 ingredients, corn starch and conditioner (and food coloring is optional), this is a very easy recipe anyone can try at home by mixing together. Better yet, usually these items can be easily found in anyone’s home. This easy and fun idea helps with staying home and keeping the kids entertained.”
This is such a fun idea!
