Our fun with Bubble Dough

When I came across Creative Playhouse's post about bubble dough, I knew we had to try it out with the little monkeys!

You only need two ingredients: 1 cup of cornstarch and 1/4 cup of dish washing liquid

Mix them together (though we later found out it's best to add the liquid soap slowly):

As you can see, ours came out a bit too liquidy:

Which made it seem more like the obleck goop:

Which the monkeys enjoyed playing with anyway:

So we added more cornstarch to it:

We finally ended up with what felt a lot like silly putty:

And although it looked wet, it wasn't wet to the touch.  Granted, we will redo this experiment by slowly adding soap to it next time, but it really goes to show you can't mess up experiments with the little monkeys; it's all about having fun!

What's your favorite dough to play with and touch?
