Kool-Aid Ice cream dough new sensory play

When I was experimenting with our fake snow play, I made this fun and yummy smelling ice cream dough by adding kool-aid to the mixture. Our favorite was the watermelon, it made the room smell so YUMMY!!

I was so excited to come up with a new sensory play for the kids. It looks and smells just like real ice cream, plus it was cool to the touch.

The kids love to do imaginary play, over the summer we did an ice cream shop play with salt and water and added some kool-aid as well.

Baking soda
Hair conditioner
Storage containers
(You can get all of these ingredients from Dollar Tree)

The mixture I used to make our dough was 3 cups of baking soda, 3 teaspoons of hair conditioner(you don't need much) and kool-aid packet. Place all together and mix.

We used silicone ice cream cones we bought at Marshall's but you can get them on amazon as well. We paid only $5.99 for ours. You can also use real ice cream cones from the Dollar Store.

This sensory dough holds up great and stores well. We made ours over a month ago and we still take it out to play with it. When done playing store in a sealed container or ziplock baggie. 

If it doesn't feel like it is molding well for play just add a little hair conditioner and you are good to go.

Be sure to check out the other fun things you can do with sensory play and kool-aid as well.
