Sand Playdough

We made sand playdough - first we played with it to simply feel the texture and to discuss it's many attributes.

Some created objects - this is a train! :)


Then we each took a piece and pressed it into a starfish mold.
We sprinkled the molds with sand first so the starfish would pop out easily.

Then we created a sand castle!

A couple of days later our starfish were dry and we broke off the excess dough from the edges.

They turned out great!

We make the sand dough with 2 cups of flour - 1 cup of salt - 1 cup of sand - 1tbsp of oil - 1 1/2 cups of water (add more or less as desired) - food colouring (optional)


  1. I have never tried making sand play dough. I am adding this to my list! I love all the textures...

  2. What a great idea for playdough fun in the summer! I just featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LivingMontessoriNow
