Usually, we spend a lot of time telling kids not to put things in their mouths.  Time to take a break from that!  Edible Fairy Princess Silly Putty allows your child dig in with their hands and their mouth!  This activity is pretty easy to make, and its a great opportunity to work on executive function by letting the child follow the instructions themselves.  Try letting them knead the dough, pick the colors, and make decisions on whether the putty is the right consistency.  When you are done, the final product makes a great toy for developing fine motor skills!

Activity Supplies:

  • 1 1/2 cups corn starch
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • Food coloring


Activity Instructions

1. In a medium bowl, add corn starch.

2. Add yogurt.

3. Add a few drops of food coloring or gel.  Add more for darker and less for lighter colors.

4. Mix with spoon and take from bowl.  Knead until you have your desired consistency.  You can add a little more cornstarch if needed.

5. Store in an airtight container or a Ziploc freezer bag and keep in the fridge.  Will last up to 2 weeks!


The empty yogurt container can be great for storing your silly putty!  For some more fun, grab some markers and let your child make a label for the container.  If you make different colored play dough, you can take a moment and use the labels as an opportunity to learn/recognize colors.

If you feel like getting fancy, you can always add an edible glitter to the silly putty.  You can usually find it in the baking aisle at any grocery store.  Please be sure to take time to explain that not all glitters/silly putty is edible.

As always, I’d love to hear from you!  Please send me a pic or post a comment to tell me how you had fun with this activity!
