Buying dough and modeling clay at the store for playtime can get expensive. This two-ingredient cloud dough is made of materials that you likely already have at home! Not only will you end up with an inexpensive playtime alternative, you can discuss the science behind how it is made. You can even customize your dough by experimenting with extra add-ins and other liquid ingredients. Check out Cool Doughs, Putties, Slimes, & Goops on Hoopla for even more recipes to explore!
Cornstarch is a complex carbohydrate extracted from corn kernels. Cornstarch is common in many recipes and is often used to thicken sauces or soups. The cornstarch in your dough helps to make it thicker and more solid. The hair conditioner is a liquid made of water and many other ingredients. The conditioner helps to bind the cornstarch together and turn your mixture into dough. By mixing the cornstarch and conditioner, your ingredients go through a physical change. Your ingredients change shape and appearance, but a new chemical substance is not formed. You could still separate the cornstarch and the conditioner in your dough in the right chemistry lab!
