Corn starch and shaving cream

image

You know me I am always on the lookout for things I think look interesting, different and let’s face it….totally COOL esp now that there’s a young excited kid in the house again! I came across this idea on Pinterest the other day so decided to try it out for one of our hot afternoons here in Oklahoma. Not only did Gabe have a blast but so did Benjamin 14 & Inger 16! So all ages can have fun.

We mixed 1 can of shaving cream and 1 box of corn starch. It was the strangest sensation at first soft and silky, then a bit sticky, then kinda slimy, but the more they played with it got thicker and tougher. After about 30-45 ish mins of all the hands playing with it, the mixture became solid enough they could start to make shapes with it and kept it’s shape. It was great and the texture was different and smelled way better than play dough! Try it for yourself however….I suggest this outside incase teenagers decide to slap each other with it in the early stages. Benjamin said it smells and felt like deodorant.
