Dino Mud Recipe
In July we had a very successful Dinosaur Discovery Workshop with lots and lots of cool stations for the children to explore. This station was one of my favourites as it ticked 4 out of 5 senses #Touch #Taste #Smell # Sight
Dino Mud Recipe:
- Cocoa Powder
In a bucket add 1/4 packet of cornflour. Slowly add water to your desired consistency. The cornflour turns into a cement-like paste. Using a spatula or your hands (you are supposed to get messy right??!!) mix these 2 ingredients. Add more water if you feel its too dry. You can add more cornflour if you think there too much liquid. Add the chocolate cocoa powder. This makes the mud-like appearance as it transforms the cornflour mix brown, and gives it a chocolatey smell, which in turn heightens the sense of smell. Our the mix onto a flat tray, or wide but shallow container, add some dinosaurs and start getting messy and explore this wonderfully easy, sensory delight!
In conclusion this Dino mud, ticks all the sensory boxes, #sight – it has a brown colour, #smell & #taste – chocolatey, and #touch – has an amazing sensory texture, hard at first touch, then starts to ooze and melt through your finger tips leaving a soft, silky residue and hardens again on the tray. Enjoy making your dino mud at home!
