Here is another one for the kids! I have seen versions of these all over instagram and pinterest so I wanted to try one out on my own! I think it is a fun way to get kids doing some hands on creative play.
Let’s start with the play dough, in order to make it see my post HERE. It has the recipe and steps to take. It is also made out of flour, salt and water so if it accidentally gets eaten, its ok!
Since I am making Christmas Sensory boxes I went ahead and made red, green and white (no food coloring) play dough. I also used Peppermint, Christmas Spirit and Stress Away (vanilla) to scent the play doughs this time.
With the play dough recipe you’ll come out with four portions to fit in the boxes.
So to turn this into a sensory play dough box we need to add some fun trinkets. I found most of mine at Hobby Lobby, Target Dollar Spot and the Dollar General. You are looking for small trinket items for kids to squish into and build with the play dough. Also, be sure it goes with your theme 😉
I purchased these boxes on amazon because I could move the little slots to make larger areas. This is helpful for the play dough sections and larger trinkets. Sebastian and I came up with the layout of our box and how everything would fit and then went to town filling it up.
Once filled and play dough made, we wrapped the play dough in plastic wrap to keep it from drying out for the time being. I plan to give these out as “party favors” for Madeline’s Birthday Party so I will be putting the kids names on the top with my cricut machine.
However a ribbon with a cute Christmas cookie cutter would be cute! They have a six pack of Christmas cookie cutters at the dollar general.
