Sensory Snow 

Sensory Snow 

I recently made this Fake Snow for Finn, it was so easy to make and fun to play with. It was mouldable like Snow but crumbled back easily so can be used over again. 

You need; 

  • A can of shaving foam or gel 
  • Baking Soda about 300/400g 
  • Glitter 

I started by putting a full tub of baking soda into the box (200g). 

I then slowly squirted in the shaving gel, mixing it as I went along. I used the whole can of shaving gel. 

I then added more baking soda a bit at a time until it had the texture of snow. 

It will look like this when it’s done. I then sprinkled in glitter and mixed it together. Due to the baking Soda when its first made it will expand when you mix  it together so it’s best to play with it straight away. 

Edible Mud & Worms 

Edible Mud & Worms 

We recently made this Edible mud & worms it was so much fun! Finn loved it.

It was really easy to make, I just combined a few different methods I found online. I just guessed the amounts as well and mixed until it was the right consistency but below is roughly what I used. 

I used, 

  • 3 X packets of chocolate angel delight (but you could combine flour and coco powder if you prefer) 
  • About 3 tablespoons of baking powder 
  • About 8 tablespoons of flour 
  • A cup of water – just add gradually and stir until it’s the right consistency. Thick like wet mud but not too runny. 
  • About 3 tablespoons of cooking oil just to thicken it up. 

I mixed all the dry ingredients, then slowly added the water and oil mixing well. 

For the edible worms I  cooked spaghetti and added black food colouring. 

We also recently made this Cloud Dough Finn loved playing with it.

Cloud Dough 

I recently found a few Posts on Pinterest for Cloud Dough or Moon sand so I thought I would give it a go. Finn loved it. It’s easy to mould together but returns to a wet sand like consistency. 

before mixing

You need 

  • Plain Flour 
  • Vegetable Oil 
  • Food colouring (optional) 
  • Glitter (optional) 
  • A large tray preferably with a lid 
  • A whisk 
  • A bowl to mix it

Adding Blue Food Dye

Cloud dough is really simply to make all you do is mix 1 part vegetable oil to 4 parts flour, I used a small cup. I stirred it with a whisk then pressed it all together with my hands. To get the coloured effect I made 4 lots separately  with red, blue, green and yellow food dye then mixed it all together in a large tub. I then sprinkled glitter on it all and pressed it together. The food dye and glitter are optional but I just really liked the effect it gave. 

Finn loved pressing it, scooping it up and driving his cars through it. If you keep a lid on it when you aren’t using it it should last a week or 2 as well.
