Soft scented homemade dough for sensory play

Bear and I do a sensory activity almost every day and one of the recipes I have been dying to try is mixing conditioner with flour.

I had read that it gave the dough a soft feel and they do not lie. This dough felt so soft hours after and with it’s scented aroma even I was reluctant to put it down

To make your own ….

You need:-

2 cups Flour

3/4 cup Conditioner

1/4 cup Salt ( optional)


Slowly mix the conditioner into the flour and knead until soft .

I added salt to my dough out of habit but you can leave it out.

Note that you may need to add a bit more conditioner if you find the consistency is not correct.

It should feel like a soft ball of dough.

Store in a zip lock bag or air tight container.

*Do not eat.
