Bubble Dough

Made from two simple ingredients, Kat of Creative Playhouse describes her bubble dough concoction as 'a bit like putty'. The soft, light texture is sure to appeal to little hands and we know your little ones will have a blast exploring how the dough molds, cuts, and holds together! [NOTE: We love that Kat used scented soap to create the dough so that it's a treat for the hands as well as the nose!]

Ice Cream Dough

Perfect for those hot summer days, Catherine of Momma's Fun World used three simple ingredients to create this wonderfully smelly sensory pretend play concoction! Placed in clear containers and set out with ice cream scoops, bowls, cones, toppings, and other ice cream shoppe props, your little ones are sure to have a ball molding the dough into scoops, creating new sundae flavors, and serving their customers. Again, this sensory experience is not only a treat for the eyes and hands, it's also a treat for the nose!
