With about 2 feet of snow outside, we needed something tropical around here! This easy sensory dough was the perfect indoor amusement.
In a shallow bin, combine 1 cup coconut milk with about 2 cups cornstarch. You may have to adjust the ratios slightly; at first I had something similar to ooblek, but dusting the mixture with just a bit more cornstarch made it perfect. I crumbled it between my fingers and it began to look – and smell – like tropical sand!
Add any fun items that will heighten the tropical vibe. I had a few bright purple flowers, as well as some star fish from the craft store. Veronika enjoyed plucking the flowers out, and testing their texture.
More than anything, she loved simply stirring at the “sand”. This was a great way to keep busy and feel warm on a winter day.
