Ay-yi-yi! I am experimenting with a craft idea for our First Graders' Holiday Party and it is NOT going well!
I found a recipe for Soapy Snowman Sculptures on-line. Supposedly you take 2 cups of Ivory Snow detergent and mix it with 1/2 cup water (they say using a hand mixer) until it is the consistency of dough. Then you are supposed to quickly shape it into three balls to make a snowman and decorate it with buttons, felt scarves, small twigs, etc.
I don't have a hand mixer, so I tried mixing with a whisk. When that didn't work, I dug out my electric mixer and tried that. Now it is just the consistency of glop!
Have any of you ever done this? Anyone have a better recipe? I am suddenly seeing the merits of just buying plain white playdough, but that will be a little spendy I think. I would just make regular playdough, but I don't think it turns out white - kind of brown, rather.
