Homemade Soap Putty
We started out our Soap Dough recipe a year ago when we were enjoying 12 months of sensory play. Soap Dough just came about, and it was awesome.
But since we are always trying out new things to work our hand muscles and have fun with I decided to see what we could do with just a couple of kitchen ingredients.
Another great thing about this recipe is you children can do the whole thing themselves. Here you can see Bells adding the dish soap to the cornstarch.
Mixing, Pulling and Stretching the soap putty.
Squishing, flattening, and spreading soap putty.
If your child loves color add a couple of drops of food coloring for a putty that is sure to delight everyone. They will love the feel of this putty.

See how cool this putty is in action? A little piece goes a long way so if you are using it as soap keep it in a container and just pull a dime size piece out when you need it.
My daughter decided to wash her animals and give them a bath. It was a major bubble bath, but a lot of fun.
I recommend trying out this soap putty. It was a lot of fun and an entirely different sensory experience than play dough.
Bells favorite thing to do with the soap putty is to pick it apart into little tiny pieces and use it for soap to make bubbles 🙂
