As we had just bought some fresh play sand I thought we should try out a sand play dough recipe! This was the first time I had tried this recipe and found it was quite sticky to begin with, so I added a little more flour which helped.
This is a no cook recipe but you’ll still need to add very hot water, so be careful if you are making near children.
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of play sand
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 3/4 hot water
- 1 tbsp of oil
- 1 tbsp of creme of tartar
- 1 tbsp of glycerine
- Mix the dry ingredients together
- Gradually add the hot water and mix
- Once it has cooled then knead
That’s it, it’s ready to play! To start with, I used this with a range of shells for a seaside themed invitation to play; glass beads and shells. It could also work well with a construction small world or tuff spot set up. I would also double the quantity next time to have more to play with.
