Mud Dough Fun

Pin It Now!

In preparation for our Messy Play Date, we have been playing around with a lot of fun, messy activities.  I came across a recipe for mud dough and thought we would give it a try.  

Mud Dough Recipe
½ cup of cold water (we ended up using more water than this, it was too thick)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 tablespoons brown tempera paint
½ cup of salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 ½ cups of white flour

This was the invitation Avery woke up to after nap that day.  I pre-measured but let her do all the mixing, which she loves!

As you can see, it was a little thick so as we played we added a bit more water to make it a little thinner but we still left it pretty thick.  We also got out bowls of little marshmallows, dry oatmeal, and uncooked rice and pasta so she could make a mud cake.
She had such a great time, it is definitely one we will be doing again!
