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.

Moon Sand



8 cups plain flour

1 cup oil (baby oil/cooking oil etc.)



This is super easy to prepare.  Just mix the 2 ingredients together and that’s it!  This is so much easier to clean up than ordinary sand, but holds its shape just as well.
