Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Foam Dough

1 Comment

Today’s craft is by far the easiest craft I have ever shared. E.V.E.R. There are only two ingredients (or three if you’re feeling wild and crazy), and it takes no time at all to make. But, it will likely keep the kiddos entertained for a while. And it’s a cinch to clean up. So? Win, win, win, win! Thanks to Mom Trusted for sharing such a great craft idea!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Shaving cream
  • Corn starch
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Cups, bowls, spoons, play dough tools, etc. (optional)

Then you’ll do a little mixing and be done. Yup, I said done. Within minutes you’ll end up with a “soft and silky” moldable dough that’s ready to go. (Warning: Make sure your kids don’t eat this because of the shaving cream.)

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
