We are in full winter celebration mode! Winter can be cold, gray and seem to last forever. We like to keep it fun and exciting! If you’ve been following my blog for awhile then you know that I love hands-on activities. No matter the holiday or season, I am all about sensory play! I found inspiration for this Hot Chocolate Cloud Dough Sensory Bin online and knew we had to make it.
Hot Chocolate Cloud Dough is so easy to make! We already had everything on hand too and it’s edible. Bonus!
Here’s what you need to make Edible Hot Chocolate Cloud Dough:
This recipe was adapted from Little Bins for Little Hands. They have amazing sensory bin ideas!
- Plastic Sensory Bin
- Measuring Cups
- Recording Sheet
- Large Spoon / Whisk
- 4.5 Cups of Flour
- 1/2 Cup White Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 Cup Vegetable Oil
- Mini Marshmallows
What to Do:
1: Use the recording sheet throughout the sensory bin to record what you think will happen, what actually happened, and what you learned.
2: Mix the flour, sugar and cocoa in the bin with a whisk.
3: Add the vegetable oil and mix well.
4: Add the mini marshmallows and enjoy!
This sensory bin was a huge hit! The children loved playing with the Hot Chocolate Cloud Dough! The smell is amazing!!!! We love that it’s edible too for our younger children who love to taste EVERYTHING! 😉
