Welcome to the most awesome sensory play this side of the Mississippi. It is soft and moldable, yet dry and crumbly. It is made of just two ingredients. After the kids are done shaping it and using it for imaginative sensory play, you can add vinegar and it becomes a really cool science activity. Prepare yourselves for some pretty outrageous fun. I call it Party Dough because of all the glitter and the “Ooh’s” and “Aah’s” that are elicited as the kids experiment and play!
We used the same basic recipe for Erupting Snow as found on Growing a Jeweled Rose. Since we wanted Party Dough we added food coloring (blue) and TONS of glitter of all colors. I also added a little bit of water to make it less crumbly and more moldable. It worked beautifully and the kids had a blast playing in it.
The kids had fun playing in it with all kinds of toys and tools. They scooped it into little cups, molded it into cookie cutters, made an igloo, stirred it, and ran their fingers through it just to see how it felt. (Note: Fizzy Cloud Dough is not edible.)
Once they were done with sensory play, we got out the vinegar and let the real magic begin. The kids used plastic pipettes to squirt the vinegar onto their Party Dough, squealing with delight as it fizzed and erupted into foamy bubbles. This was definitely the highlight of their play!
We even caught some of the glittery fizz on video!
