Marshmallow play dough recipe

Your children love playing with play dough, but you do not really like the fact that they play with a commercial play dough, because you do not really know the ingredients. Especially if your youngest child thinks that play dough is a snack rather than a game . . . It is not a good idea to give him / her a play dough with wierd ingredients.

Why not make homemade play dough then ? Do you think the texture is not great ? You are wrong. We found a really great play dough recipe.

This recipe is so great! You will love its texture ! Because it is different from all the play dough textures you have tried so far !

  • 6 big marshmallows
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 8 to 12 drops of liquid food coloring ( The food coloring does not stain once mixed )
  • 4 - 5 tbsp. cornstarch


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add marshmallows and coconut oil and heat for 20 to 30 seconds or until marshmallows are bubbling slightly
  2. Add a few drops of food coloring to the marshmallows, and mix well until combined.
  3. Wait until the dough is cold enough to handle it and add the cornstarch, mix. When the dough becomes too difficult to stir with a spoon, sprinkle the surface with cornstarch and knead the dough by hand until the dough is easily malleable.
