This is the softest play dough you’ll ever make and the best bit – no cooking on the stove.


  • 1/2 cup shaving cream
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 2 drops food colouring


  1. Mix together equal parts shaving cream and corn starch in a bowl.
  2. Roll out on to a clean board then knead it until it starts to form dough.
  3. Add a few drops of food colouring to colour it, then knead some more.

Notes... Add more cornflour if the mixture is too wet. Add more shaving cream if the mixture is too dry.

  • Oh I like the looks of this play dough recipe. It’s seems like it will be extra soft great I will have to make this during the school holidays.


  • Great easy recipe and a small amount too. looks like fun.


  • A playdough that’s not dangerous to make. No hot water, no cooking, no mess, how amazing!


  • Ahhhh. Finally a play dough that my kids will not be allergic to.


  • Definitely don’t need much to make it. I’m curious as to how long lasting it is

    • Store it in an air tight container and mine lasts for around 2-3 weeks (but my kids play with it A-LOT each day).
