When you are dealing with low tone hands it can be hard to find a dough that encourages work with fingers and yet doesn’t exhaust. We have been playing around with a wide variety of homemade dough recipes.
This time the recipe was super simple and didn’t evolve tons of cooking and stirring.
I used 2 parts cornstarch to 1 part conditioner.
Then mix. Start with a base of cornstarch and slowly add conditioner. We found that the dough formed up after a minute or two of kneading.
The more conditioner you use the stickier it will be and some kids might dislike the feel on their fingers. Using a bowl and spoon until you get the right consistency would be a good idea. Since I have a sensory seeker she dove in hands first and made… well a mess but it was a good one. Hands covered and sensory fun!
The kids worked with the dough for several days and had a great time. This is not a long lived dough. After several days it started to dry out. Well worth the couple of days of fun with a soft malleable dough that helped to encourage very low tone hands to work.
