What you need for the Gingerbread Sensory Bin
Gingerbread Cloud Dough Ingredients:
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp ground ginger
Sensory Bin Supplies
Gingerbread cloud dough (recipe below)
Marshmallows (optional, but add more texture)
Gingerbread cookie cutters
scoops or spoons
A large plastic tablecloth or something to place under the play as this can get a bit messy!
To Assemble the Gingerbread Cloud Dough Sensory Bin:
Make the cloud dough by mixing the ingredients above. The consistency should be crumbly but not easy to squeeze into balls. If it is too floury, add more oil. If too wet, add more flour.
Add the gingerbread cloud dough to the tray. To the cloud dough, add the cinnamon sticks, marshmallows, scoops or spoons, and cookie cutters.
Kids can practice scooping the dough into the cookie cutters, or pressing the cookie cutter into the dough. My kids discovered that they could press down and flatten the dough, then press a gingerbread man design into it with the cookie cutter.
Simply playing with this gingerbread cloud dough is a wonderful sensory experience for kids.
Kids will love to make gingerbread creations over and over again!
