No Cook Sandy Play Dough Recipe - so simple

Looking for something a little different to standard play dough? Not that anything is wrong with standard play dough, we absolutely love it at our place but it is always nice to have something a little different, something textured to change things up a bit and keep sensory play dough experiences fun, interesting and motivating.


This Sandy Play Dough Recipe is flecked with colour and texture from the sand and children and they will enjoy the tactile experience.

  • Mix the water and food colouring together in a cup.
  • Add the water gradually and knead with hands until the mixture forms a ball and a play dough consistency.
