As with most things on the internet or Pintrest, if it seems fun, we try it. Unfortunately I don't remember where I originally saw this idea so I can't give credit where it is due. The recipe for this clay includes corn starch, food coloring and conditioner (we used some travel sized that we had left over from vacation).
To start, we put the conditioner in a bowl. Then we added a drop or two of food coloring and mixed that together with a spoon. Finally, we added the corn starch gradually, and at this point we picked it up and used our hands for the final mixing.
The clay is lightweight. Something similar to moon dough and it smells great!
Since it was "conditioning" our hands it made us think about using lotion. We tried a version using lotion instead of conditioner. It was lighter and more pliable. And, it made our hands feel great!
