Super Soft 2-Ingredient Play Dough

I have been compensated by Johnson's® Baby for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.

Kids will love this Super Soft 2-Ingredient Play Dough made with Johnson's® Baby Lotion!

We have always enjoyed making different slimes and play dough throughout the years. My daughter especially loves getting her hands dirty and learning the science behind it all. With only two ingredients, this play dough is simple to make and has a pillowy-soft texture that kids of every age will love squishing and molding.

The main ingredient in this play dough is Johnson's® Baby lotion. It's great to use in this play dough for those with sensitive skin, because it's clinically proven to be gentle and mild, as well as being hypoallergenic and paraben-free. You can find a variety of baby lotion scents and formulas at Walmart in the baby products aisle.

In a mixing bowl, add in two cups of cornstarch. You could use a flour instead, but the cornstarch is a lot finer and will help give the dough an extra soft texture.

Next, add in one cup of baby lotion. Any variety of Johnson's Baby lotion will work great for this project, and will leave your hands feeling baby soft! Depending on which lotion you use, your play dough will have a different scent. The Honey Apple is one of my favorites! We also use the Bedtime baby lotion for a play dough that's great for calming before bedtime.

Stir the ingredients together until it combines and starts to thicken up. The dough will be crumbly.

At this point, use your hands to knead the dough and help the ingredients to combine evenly. The more you knead it and heat it up with your hands, the dough should become less crumbly and more soft and pliable. If the dough seems to be a little too dry, you can work in a small amount of lotion. If it's too sticky, add in a little more corn starch.

Now the play dough is ready to be molded, squished and played with for hours of fun!

Just for fun, you can also add in glitter to create a sparkly play dough! Any kind of glitter will work: fine, chunky, multi-colored, holographic, iridescent, or even all of those glitters combined can be used for a bit of glimmer and glam!

Flatten the dough out and sprinkle as much or as little glitter as you'd like in the center.

Fold the dough over and knead it until all of the glitter has been distributed. You can flatten it out and knead in more glitter at any time if you want more sparkle.

To color the dough, I first split a batch into small balls. Flatten out a ball, and add in 2-3 drops of food coloring into the center.

Knead the color into the dough. The coloring will get on your fingertips while kneading, so wear gloves if you are worried about it.

Once the color has been mixed in, the dough is ready to play with! Combine different colors of dye to create a rainbow of colors, and know that the food coloring doesn't rub off onto little hands while playing. Gel food coloring colors are more vibrant, but the dye seemed to come off more on my hands every time we played with the dough, so I don't recommend them for this project.

Kids are going to love this play dough! It smells fantastic, feels super soft, and is sure to keep them entertained for hours. When it sits out or gets cold, the dough becomes crumbly. However, if you work it with your hands and warm it up, it seems to go back to normal after a few minutes. When the dough isn't being played with, keep it in a sealed plastic bag or container for a few days.

DIY Dead Rose Wreath

Make a Dead Rose Wreath out of items from the dollar store to display this Halloween!

DIY Dead Rose Wreath made with dollar store supplies

Here's what you'll need to make this Dead Rose Wreath:
• 8" Foam Wreath Form
• 3-4 Black Rose Bunches
• Black or Gray Ribbon
• Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

Foam wreaths are awesome for projects like this, but the hot glue can melt the foam if you add something directly to it. So first you need to cover the wreath with some ribbon. It doesn't matter what kind or color, but I usually go with a wide ribbon in a coordinating color. Add a glob of hot glue to the wreath and attach one end of the ribbon to the wreath form. Wrap the ribbon all the way around the wreath so you don't see any foam showing. Glue the other end of the ribbon down.

Cut the flowers from the stem using some wire cutters. If your stems don't have wire, you can use regular craft scissors. I also cut off the leaves from the stems. Add some glue to the bottom of a rose and place it down on the front of the wreath. Next I would place another rose right next to it (without glue) to see where it looked/fit best. Then add some glue and stick it down. Repeat until the wreath is covered and looks how you want it. For any empty spaces or in places that need a little something extra, I stuck leaves down and in between the flowers.  

The best part about making a wreath for Halloween? You don't have to worry about removing all of those glue gun strings! They will look like cobwebs tangled between all of the dead roses, lace and leaves.

Hang the wreath up to decorate your home, office, or favorite space for Halloween. I hope this tutorial has left you feeling inspired to make on for yourself. The wreath is spookily beautiful for only spending about $5 for everything!
