Marshmallow Playdough

This is a great sensory play activity for small children that may be tempted to put it in their mouth. It can be used for up to 3 days.


6 large marshmallows

3 tbsp of corn starch

2 tsp coconut oil

Food colouring


Combine all the ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat until the marshmallows expand (about 30 seconds). Mix with a spoon and begin kneading the dough together with your hands.

    Niiiiice. I found a super easy & safe one on Pinterest that my boys LOVE. 4 cups of flour, 2 cups of salt and 1/2 cup of warm water. Works great! I always need to add a tad bit more water. It’s tough having an almost 5 year old, an almost 4 year old and a 1 year old who put everything in his mouth! Legos are a nightmare for me.

    I’ll let you know how it goes. I did a shaving cream one on Pinterest… Effing disaster.
