Make your own foam dough

 

What you'll need for your foam dough recipe

 
  • Shaving foam
  • Cornflour
  • Food colouring in various colours
  • Small pots (old small yoghurt pots are ideal)
 

How to make foam dough


1. Measure out approx 5 tablespoons of shaving foam into a small pot.

2. Add a few drops of food colouring to the shaving foam and mix well until you get the colour you want.

3. Slowly add the cornflour a teaspoon at a time, stirring thoroughly until the mixture starts to look slightly doughy.

Be careful not to add too much cornflour as the more cornflour you add, the drier the dough. If the dough becomes too dry it will also lose some of its foamy, puffy texture.

4. Repeat the process using another food colouring colour.

5. Have fun bending and massaging the foam dough into all sorts of shapes!
