It’s similar to play-doh but, it’s simple enough for kids to make and uses just 4 ingredients you probably already have on hand.

To make it you need the following supplies:


Measuring Cup



Hair Conditioner

Food Color

Fine Glitter

Fairy dough ingredients

To make it simply put 2 1/2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup of conditioner in the bowl. (We used a peach conditioner and the dough smells great!).  Add a squirt of food color.

Add glitter if you desire. The girls thought the fine iridescent glitter looked the most fairy-ish.

Then simply stir ingredients. Once it starts to form a ball, kneed it. If it’s too dry add a little more conditioner and if it’s too wet add a little cornstarch.

Once it’s done play away!

When your done playing store it in a baggie or airtight container.

Fairy dough is quick, easy and the kids love it. If you have boys change it up and make Dino Dough. Use blue or green food coloring and put plastic dinosaurs in it.

Next, time your kiddos are bored give it a try and let me know your variations!
