It’s hard to believe that for three years now we have been sharing our favorite sensory dough recipes! Welcome back for another month of  12 Months of Sensory Dough Recipes where several bloggers get together to share the exciting sensory dough recipes and a variety of twists and turns.  It is our hope that you will have a one-stop resource for all things Sensory dough! This month we are featuring a huge list of frozen dough recipes. We are super excited about our new melting hearts frozen dough recipe.

Melting Hearts Frozen Dough

As always with our sensory doughs, we are never quite sure if our idea is going to work or not. We got these awesome heart silicone molds for Christmas and knew we had to use them for something (don’t be surprised if you don’t see them a lot in the next few weeks). This frozen dough was the perfect candidate.

Frozen Oobleck Hearts

One of our absolute favorite sensory recipes is Oobleck. Despite never getting it up on the blog, and telling you about it, we make it quite often because the boys love it so much! Up until now, Super B (the toddler) wanted nothing to do with anything that messy.

We decided that it would be cool to see what would happen if we froze our favorite Oobleck recipe. The results were awesome!

Simple Recipe for Frozen Oobleck

Every time we make sensory doughs, we treat it as an experiment and you should too. While I gave you a recipe to follow, it is more of a suggestion. We made each of our molds with different amounts of water vs. cornstarch so that we could compare them later and determine how it would change the outcome of our recipes.

To make the frozen dough, simple mix the ingredients together until you get a lovely oobleckian (yep, its a word) substance. You want a nice mixture that is firm to the touch but liquid when poured.

Once you have the perfect consistency, pour your mixtures into your molds. At this point, it is so pretty, you might want to take a picture too. Your molds are about to hang out in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

After your molds have hardened, you are ready to party! We made just enough so that everyone could have one of each primary color. We were hoping to do a little bit of color mixing.

Melting Hearts Sensory Play Recipe

After the hearts hit our hands they immediately started to melt. Some of them melted faster than others (and no, I am not going to tell you which ones). I was super surprised to see Super B jump right in and get her hands messy. What you don’t see is a wet towel right beside her that she cleaned off with every few minutes.

She loved the texture and how the two colors made a new color.

We didn’t expect for the melting hearts to stick together, but when they did, there was no getting them separated.

Melting Heart Frozen Dough

We poked our hearts, held our hearts and even broke our hearts. This activity lasted almost two hours, which is pretty unheard of when you are playing with three children. Eventually, the frozen oobleck just turned into a swamp of oobleck, but that didn’t stop anyone. Bones and Super B, continued to play and play until their hearts were completely melted away (and then some) .
