Bubble Solution Recipe

  • 8 cups of distilled water
  • 3/4 cups of Dawn dish soap (not anti-bacterial)
  • 3 Tbsp of glycerin

Mix together and let sit over night in an open container. Amounts are approximate. You may need to add more of a specific ingredient to make it the right bubble stickiness.

Play Dough Recipe

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil
  • food coloring

Mix together all the ingredients, except the food coloring, in a medium saucepan. Cook over low/medium heat while stirring. Once it begins to thicken add the coloring. Continue to stirring until the mixture begins to gather around the spoon. Once the dough is no longer wet, remove and put onto wax paper or a plate and let it cool. After 30 minutes knead the dough for a few seconds and then it’s good to use!

Ice Cream Dough Recipe

  • 3/4 cup of hair conditioner
  • 1 1/2 cup of cornstarch

Mix together and play.

To create different “flavors” try adding food coloring and and scents to the mix, such as imitation vanilla or chocolate extract.

Note: this is not an edible dough. It just has the texture and look of ice cream.


  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup of corn or potato starch
  • few drops food coloring

Mix it. The goal is to get a consistency of both liquid and solid. You may need to add more water or more starch in order to reach perfection.
