We had a lot of fun with our no cook Sugar Plum Playdough.  If you follow along with us  then you know I have a trusted playdough recipe that I often modify for each new batch.  I have tried a few others and did not have good results.  So, I like to stick with what I know.  This no cook recipe was fabulous and I see us trying it again.  However, I could not help but see if I could also adapt my go to playdough recipe to make Sugar Plum Crumble Dough Recipe.  I had another idea for a sensory play activity and could not wait to try it out.

What to do:
 
Follow White Glitter Playdough Recipe HERE.  In addition add half a bottle of soap and purple glitter.  Now we had a fun new playdough except it kept crumbling.  Even though it was crumbling you could still mold it like playdough.  So, Sugar Plum Crumble Dough was created.

I had a vision of a sugar plum shop but my oldest insisted we have a factory.  I set them up a pretend play area with a Sugar Plum Factory.  



What I used:

I used our sensory bin to help set up the play area.  I also printed a quick sign to place in the bin. I gathered play dishes and set them up. The kids 2yr and 5yr now had a factory to play with.

We started out making little sugar plums.  I rolled a few and my toddler used a measuring spoon.  I also made homemade color sugar for us to roll the sugar plums in.

The colored sugar was a big hit with the kids.  It just gave it the extra thing it needed to look like a sugar plum.

This one activity was great for fine motor skills, pretend play, using their imaginations, great for problem solving, and a fun way to incorporate sensory play in it too.  The Sugar Plum crumble Dough added the sense of sight, touch, smell, and they did taste the colored sugar before we started.  Do note the crumble dough is NOT SAFE TO EAT.

We had fun playing together too.  My toddler and I after making our sugar plums pretended to have tea with our fresh treats.  Little brother also insisted that daddy make sugar plums too.  I love that my husband went outside to play too.  My 5 yr also had fun playing with the dough.

Once they were through playing we sealed it in the bin and left it a day or two.  The kids got it back out and played with it again.  This time they did what they love to do best and hauled it in their trucks and wagons on the porch.  I knew when they went out with the box it mostly was not coming back.  They did manage to save a little of it during clean up time.  I was glad that they got to play with it a few times and had fun.  I can see us trying more Crumble Dough in the future.  Maybe you and the kids can enjoy this too.
