DIY Bathtub Play Dough

Bubble Bath Playdough Recipe

Author Parenting Chaos


  • 3 cups water
  • 1-2 cups Johnson’s and Johnson's No More Tear Moisture Wash
  • Non-stick oil spray
  • 4-6 cups of flour
  • Gel Food Dye


  1. Pour water into a large bowl and bring to a boil in the microwave.
  2. Remove from microwave and add in Johnson’s & Johnson's No More Tear Moisture Wash.
  3. Portion out into separate bowls and add colors. If you are only adding in one color you do not need to create separate bowls.
  4. Add in one cup of flour into each bowl of 1 cup of water/soap and stir. Slowly add in up to one cup more.
  5. At about two cups of flour per one cup of water/soap mixture your playdough will still be sticky but this is ok. Remove it from the bowl and place it on a flat surface where you will have room to knead. Coat your play dough in non-stick oil spray, kneading it in and adding more, until it no longer sticks to your hands.
  6. Play!
