So many great playtime activities here - my kids will engage in them all for unheard of amounts of time!

Best Play Dough, Slime & Other Sensory Activities for Kids

It’s no secret we love DIY play dough, slime, and other sensory activities around here.  Hands-on play not only leads to increased creativity and fine-motor development (which is important for things like writing), it’s also a fabulous boredom buster.

Play dough and sensory boxes are some of our go-to activities when the weather is bad or mom needs some time to pay bills, do laundry, etc.

Recently the folks over at eHow’s Mom Channel asked me to roundup some of my favorite playtime posts (written either for them, or here on MPMK) and I just couldn’t resist focusing on sensory play.

Included in my top 10 sensory activities are:

  • Jell-O play dough
  • Edible peanut butter play dough
  • Cloud dough
  • Scented, Glitter Slime
  • Making Snowmen Inside
  • A Veggie Garden Sensory Box
  • Rainbow Rice
  • and more!

Check out my full list of Top 10 Sensory Activities for Kids and bookmark it for when you need it – you’ll be happy you did!
