Two-Ingredient Sensory Dough

3.0 based on 179 ratings

What You Need

  • 1 Cup baby oil
  • 8 Cups flour
  • Plastic tub
  • Plastic molds or scoops (optional)
  • Food coloring in a color of your choice

What You Do:

  1. If you'd like to add a third ingredient and add color to your sensory dough, one method is to mix one or two drops of food dye into the cup of oil before combining it with the flour. Otherwise, skip to Step 2.
  2. In a bowl or container mix the oil and flour together, just like you might if you were about to bake something.
  3. Transfer the sensory dough to the bin where your child can play with it. You could set the bin outside if the weather is nice or inside, with plastic or a drop cloth spread on the floor beneath it.
  4. That's it! It's ready for your child to run her fingers through it, and mold it to her heart's content. Throw in a couple scoopers or plastic cups for variety.
