Jack and Eve had a great time making this stretchy dough on Friday. It was easy to make and it provided them (and me!) with lots of fun and laughs. Jack and Eve made this stretchy dough by combining 1 1/2 cups of liquid starch with 2 five ounce bottles of Elmer's clear glue...and that's it (for now). After Jack and Eve mixed the ingredients together with their hands it formed into a gel-like dough, which was very slippery and quite stretchy. A great texture for some fun sensory play!

Here are some pictures of all the fun...
In order to decorate our dough we decided to add some gold glitter....some SERIOUS GOLD GLITTER (who doesn't love a little extra sparkle in their life?!). We ended up adding about a full cup to our dough to make what looked like liquid gold. It was so beautiful!
