My kids love and I mean LOVE Silly Putty! We’ve made – Frozen Silly PuttyJelly/Jello Silly Putty, Christmas Silly Putty – you name it! You can check out a round up of all of our favourites here!

When I came across a NEW way of making this amazing sensory activity via Smart School House, I knew the kiddies would love it…and I wasn’t wrong! Dish Soap Silly Putty! Whaaaat?!

You can make it with things you probably already have in your cupboard!

To make your own  yo will need

3/4 cup of corn starch/corn flour

1/2 cup of of dish soap


DIY Dish Soap Silly Putty

How to make it

Step 1

Add the cornstarch/cornflour to a bowl

Step 2

Add the dish soap to the cornstarch/cornflour

Step 3

Mix until is is well combined. Them get your hands in there and mix it until it becomes oozy, gooey loveliness!

My kids played with this for ages! I store it in a zip lock bag or air tight container and it will last for two to three weeks!

  1. I love all your creative things to do with children and they are inexpensive as well i know my grandkids will love to do theses as well i live on a fixed income but even i can afford to make these and be a cool grandma!! Thanks So Much!!!

    1. Hi Linda, reading this makes us so HAPPY! We are so pleased you enjoy doing FUN things with your grandkids! They are super lucky to have such a FUN grandma like you! Louise x

  2. So simple, yet so much fun… I love a recipe with ingredients that I already have at home. Gonna try it with my son. He’s still at that age where everything goes in his mouth, so I’ll stay extra close. Thanks for sharing…

  3. We tried this but just got a play dough sort of thing … my daughter still spent ages playing with it ! So it was good fun.

  4. Oh my gosh, you are a boredom lifesaver! I hate finding super fun looking sensory activities only to find out that it has a zillion ingredients or that I have to special order one of the ingredients. Seriously, thank you so much. Love your site 🙂

  5. We tried this and got a sticky mess. It was like working with too wet dough. Adding more cornstarch really didn’t help. It got sort of playdough like but was never a nice oozey putty.

  6. Cheaper watery one dollar dish soap makes for a less stickier or play doh likke substance. At first i used a more expensive brand tgen went out and bought the cheapest dish soap i could find and it worked better.

  7. I threw this in the microwave for 1:30, stirring every 30 seconds, and I got a nice fluffy doh-putty. I figured my soap had too much water content, and I also know if you heat cornstarch up, it changes chemically a bit. It worked really well!
