Play dough is a staple of kids entertainment and exploration, now add an element! Dental floss provides a safe way to cleanly cut play dough and create awesome projects - like a model of the Earth's layers.

How We Did It

Play Dough + Dental Floss = an Earth Exploration (Two Ingredient Tuesday)

Create a play dough sculpture using layers of play dough. Start with red = the inner core, then orange = the outer core, yellow = the mantle, brown = the crust, and blue and green = ocean and land.



Play Dough + Dental Floss = an Earth Exploration (Two Ingredient Tuesday)

Use the dental floss to cut the play dough! To make it educational, reveal the inner layers and explain what each layer represents.
