My oldest wanted to try some Strawberry scented sensory play with summer and I told him we could.  We love fresh strawberries at my house.  Playing with strawberry scented Ice Cream Dough seemed like a must!  We set out to make a list of a few more strawberry inspired play ideas. Then we whipped up a batch of Strawberry ice cream dough for afternoon play.

Our set up:

I got out our smaller plastic bin and ice cream play set from IKEA.  I added the ice cream dough to the bin. Then placed the play items in the bin.  Of course we had to have sprinkles!

This recipe is taste safe but does not taste good and should NOT be eaten.  However, if the kids put a little in their mouths it is ok. Never use ingredients for play recipes that your kids are allergic to. If your kids have a strawberry allergy maybe try another scent.

All three kids got to enjoy this sensory bin for play time.  My kids are 1yr, 3yr, and 5yr.  They all enjoyed playing with the ice cream dough.

Great for free play, problem solving, imagination, sibling bonding, and sharing.  Go over the color and scent.  Talk about strawberries and how they are a fruit, they are sweet, they are red…

This is the perfect sensory play for sight and scent!


This ice cream dough did smell good enough to eat but we did not.  Baby brother did taste the tiniest amount and made a funny face.  After that he did not put any more in his mouth.


We even got daddy playing in the ice cream shop.  The kids love when daddy is home for playtime.

Daddy was trying to save the sprinkles that little brother had emptied into the bottom of the container.  The sprinkles are always a hit with sensory play.  I try to get them on clearance after holidays or at the dollar stores.
