Sensory play with dough

Sensory Play helps children learn about their environment and also as a child becomes older can help them learn other subjects by catering for their different learning styles. This weeks features from last weeks Tuesday Tots are all about sensory play with dough – with a mix of play dough, cloud dough and other types these are easy to get hold of of create at home and perfect for play and fun.

Sensory Play with Dough

Starting for with some Fairy Garden small world play with homemade gold play dough from Fantastic Fun and Learning.

Edible dough is great with young children – and when it’s as simple to make as this 2-ingredient bread dough from Danya Banya it’s perfect for busy mums.

Salt dough is one of our favourite doughs and this idea for salt dough mosaic tiles from Life Lesson Plans looks easy to create and fun for kids of all ages.

Foam dough looks great and I love the extra sensory elements of colour and scent in this raspberry foam dough that Crayon Box Chronicles has create bunnies from.

Cloud dough is fun and can be very messy – over on Munchkins and Moms they have been having some sensory fun with rainbows and cloud dough and B-Inspired Mama has been using cloud dough to help bring Ancient Egypt to life on the sensory table.

We’ve explored Cloud dough before – creating a snow cloud dough sensory tub and love playing and making with salt dough including using our quickest ever salt dough recipe.
