Sticky substance (Honey, Maple syrup, Corn starch) and confectioners/powdered sugar


  1. In a regular bowl, combine 1 tbsp syrup with 1 cup confectioners/powdered sugar
  2. Knead with a fork (or fingers!) until all the confectioners sugar is incorporated.
  3. Take another ½ cup of confectioners/powdered sugar and repeat.
  4. Repeat step 3 until a ball of dough appears and can be handled. 
  5. Knead in your hands coating the outside with more sugar and mixing until the ball is no longer sticky. It will have the same feel as Play-Doh!


This is a simple, fun way to make a very versatile substance. You can use it to make figures, shapes and more! The best part? Its edible! Have fun, be safe and remember to brush your teeth, that’s a lot of sugar!
