Sensory Rice Playdough

This adds a sensory aspect to a simple activity of playdough that children of all ages can enjoy.

You will need:

  • Water
  • Flour
  • Food Colouring
  • Rice
  • Bowl

Activity:

To make the playdough pour a few drops of food colouring into a jug of water. Pour some flour into a bowl and gradually stir in the water, if the colour of the flour looks too pale add some more food colouring to the mixture. If the mixture is too dry and does not combine, add some more water, and if it is too wet or sticky add more flour. Kneed the mixture with your hands so that the playdough is fully coloured and no longer sticky, and you have a nice consistency to the dough.

Once the dough has been made kneed the rice into the dough until you get the desired effect. The children can now play and mould their dough to make their own creations.
