How To Make Easy No Cook Play Dough

Hello everyone! We’re back with a new “how-to” video and this time, Chempedak and Pomelo are making play dough!

Yeappp, play dough is a favourite among the kiddos and it’s even more enjoyable when they make it themselves. It’s a completely safe keep-the-kids-busy-while-mommy-sleeps activity. Don’t judge a pregnant lady 😛

Anyway, I used to make their play dough using a rather tideous recipe which requires cooking the dough but we found this new recipe and it works a charm! Not only does it require simple ingredients that you most likely already have at home, it feels really silky smooth and smells absolutely wonderful! You just HAVE TO give it a try.

Check out the video by Chemps and Pomelo on how to make your very own play dough!

For those who can’t view the video, recipe is as below:

All you need are:

  1. 2 cups of corn flour (tepung jagung of any cheap brand)
  2. 1 cup of hair conditioner (any brand will do)
  3. Food colouring (optional)
  4. A spoon and a tray

And here’s what you have to do:

  1. Pour the flour onto the tray
  2. Add a few spoons of hair conditioner and mix with your hands
  3. Add the rest of the food conditioner and continue mixing with your hands until it comes together
  4. If you plan on making a few colours, you can split the dough into a few parts
  5. Add your food colouring and knead the dough some more
  6. And you’re done!

Note: After we were done playing, we’ve kept ours in a zip lock bag and popped it into the fridge. It still seems alright for play after a week.

  1. Pour glue into the empty bowl (use the whole bottle if you want to)

  4. Drain any excess water that appears
  5. That’s it! You’re done!

Note: After a few hours of fun play, we’ve kept ours in a zip lock bag. Not quite sure how long it can last though.

Children’s Playroom at Coway TTDI

Coway Children's PlayroomThis post is especially for the lovely moms (and dads) who enquired about the items I put up in the Coway CSTeamTTDI playroom. Hope this helps with your own home’s interior planning!

At the beginning of Ramadhan, my Coway team (part of the nationwide top performing CSTeam) was branched out to a new location, TTDI. Since it was a completely brand new office, the team set to work to do it up as best we can (ho yeahh, barren land baybeh!).

We had an entire floor to ourselves, to make and do as the bosses see fit, and we were blessed with a little private room too which the managers decided to turn into a child’s playroom.

Wait. You guys sell water and air purifiers, nak playroom buat apa?

Well, you see, every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, we have morning briefings for about an hour or so. Our agents come from various backgrounds. Some are single moms, moms who have no helpers at home, husband and wife team, so they have no alternative but to bring their little ones along with them. Our managers are totally fine with that, we’re a very family friendly operation. Heck, our products are all about the well-being of your family! However, kids being kids, they have an overwhelming amount of energy and you know that getting them to sit quietly with nothing to do for over an hour during a briefing can be rather challenging.

Hence, the idea of the playroom emerged. Best of all, the task of decorating the playroom was given to me! Oh the joy!

I intended to get to work right away but as my condition was a bit limiting, I had to delay the process. The moment I felt a bit better, I put on my Party Fluff hat and got down to business.

This was what I had to work with. An empty square or a room but plus points were that it already has good carpeting and lots of natural light.

I measured up the area and started running some ideas through my head (and threw them across to my pal in crime, Sheemi).

Budget was very minimal, so I hit the best place I could think of. IKEA!

For decoration, I went to my next favourite joint of home deco, Kaison!

Below are pictures of the COWAY CSTeamTTDI Children’s Playroom after completion.

In order to save on budget, everything was DIY. From furniture assembly, to wall papering, and toy setup. Thanks to all who lent a hand in carrying the heavy items for this pregger momma!

Hopefully this cheery room will keep the kiddos entertained long enough for their parents to get through the morning briefings! 😀

For those who are still wondering, yes, I am a Coway Agent. Although, we prefer to be called Coway Health Planners 🙂 

It’s what I have been doing ever since I left the corporate world, apart from running my party styling business. To be honest, I never expected to fall in love with doing my Coway activities. It came as an unexpected surprise. I never knew that I could have the feeling of happiness and fulfilment whenever I assist someone with their Coway purchase. As cliché as it may sound, helping a customer with their current problems (like “homaigawd, tolong la rumah I penuh dengan kucing tak larat dah bulu sana sini” or “awak please, air rumah kita berbau k pastu warna kuning, nak minum pun tak lalu”) and assisting them in choosing the right Coway product to turn their lifestyle into a healthier one gives me so much joy and happiness.
