Sensory bins are a great activity for kids – easy, fun, and wonderful for developing fine motor skills. Your kids will love this simple Chocolate Mud Recipe!
After we made our chocolate moonsand and had some material left over, we decided it was a perfect opportunity to make a fun sensory bin! My kids love this chocolate oobleck sensory play recipe since it closely simulates playing in mud! It’s a real hit with kids.
Chocolate Oobleck Sensory Play Recipe
1 box cornstarch
½ cup cocoa powder
1-2 cups water
STEP 1: In a large plastic tub, dump out the cornstarch and the cocoa powder.
STEP 2: Add in 1 cup of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency. This will create a non-Newtonian that is easy to mold but will also melt. We enjoy ours to be on the thicker side as it makes a great calming activity for the kids and is quite resistant.
STEP 3: Throw in some toys and play! We enjoyed playing with farm animals for this one.
Sensory bins are fantastic for hands-on play that helps kids develop great fine motor skills. My kids love this sensory bin as it simulates mud and farm play. I bet your kids will have a blast too with this chocolate oobleck kids play recipe!
