Pudding playdough recipe

This is such a fun recipe to make and play with. You can add a bit more water to change the texture, or you can take the play outdoors and add much more water to make it more slimy.

This activity is inspired by ideas from Pudding playdough recipe.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Creative activities help children express themselves and create something from nothing, explore materials and activities and use their imagination.

Literacy includes reading, writing, and speaking. It is the basis of any child’s learning.

Literacy skills can be taught from baby age with playful games and activities, and continues to be taught at school age where literacy instruction is more formal than just play.

Colour recognition activities helps children get to know the different colors and color blending and matching.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Mix all the supplies.
  • 1/2 cup instant pudding mix

  • 1 cup corn starch, more if needed

  • 2/3 cup warm water

I made this playdough and it came out too dry, so I added a bit more water and the texture turned out so much fun. It was firm like playdough when I held it, a bit liquid, flowing through my fingers.

The best part is that it’s totally safe for the kiddos. If the kids decide to take a taste because it smells so good, no worries.
