Weekly Kids Activities Newsletter:

DIY sensory play recipes


It’s Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, and this week’s newsletter contains 6 of my all-time favorite sensory recipes for DIY slime, playdough, moon sand, rainbow rice and more.

All of these recipes are easy to make and my kids love playing with them.

Moonsand is great to play with and so easy to make.

You can either make it with baby oil, coconut oil or other oil.

It is a bit messy so I suggest you play with it outside, inside on a table cloth or (like we do) in a little pop-up swimming pool.

I always thought that making rainbow rice would be complicated, but it's actually very easy, and it dries in about 1 hour or less.

It looks so much more fun to play with rainbow rice than with plain rice and you can keep it, so your kids can play with it again and again.

This is really an awesome recipe for a soft and long lasting playdough.

It’s a treat to play with, and when stored correctly it last a long time.

Make sure you always keep playdough ingredients at home to quickly whip up some quiet time play.


  • 1.5 cups flour

  • 1/2 cup salt

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 cup of boiling water

  • Food coloring or kid safe paint

This bubble foam sensory activity is squeaky clean messy play.

Take tear-free bubble bath, and whip it up with water and food coloring. Make as many batches of different colors as you need.

Kids can use their imagination and play with this bubble sensory bin anyway they choose.

This is a great alternative to flour based playdough.

It's especially handy if you don't have flour in the house but you have cornstarch and conditioner.

This was my first attempt at making slime and my preschooler son enjoyed helping.

I was glad that it used ingredients that I usually have in the house and that are not unsafe (like glue or borax I saw in other recipes).
