Summery Lemon Playdough

Summery Lemon Playdough 2

This is such a soft, luscious, squishy Playdough! It smells so divine with the lemon and this is a NO COOK recipe! If you pop your playdough into the fridge – it make for some cool summer play too!

When I made my Soft as a Cloud Playdough which uses only 2 ingredients…and one of them is conditioner, I thought I would try a new spin on that! Get ready for the secret ingredient…..Sorbelene cream!  It has a very similar consistency to conditioner and it’s great for little hands! I tried it and it worked beautifully!

Summery Lemon Playdough 3

Ingredients (for one large batch)

1 cup of Sorbelene Cream

3 cups corn flour

The zest & juice from one lemon

Yellow food colouring (as many drops as you need for the colour you require)


Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl, then pop into the fridge for about an hour. Now get ready for some FUN!

  7. Do you have any edible play dough recipes? I know this one and the soft as a cloud are not but my son is too young to not put it in his mouth. Thanks

  8. Do you think one could try hair conditioner or a thick, creamy lotion instead of the Sorbolene Cream? (I looked on Amazon and it’s $40 for 16 oz! – I’m in the U.S. so don’t see any locally.) Thanks! It looks like great fun.
