Fizzy Sand Dough {12 Months of Sensory Dough}

While reading all about beaches for our "row" of The Yellow Ball, I decided it would be fun to try to tie in this month's sensory dough with our book!

Fizzy Sand Play is really so simple and easy, but brought much delight to my little one. 

It was the BEST of sand play and water play combined to make fizzy sand play!


Here's what I did:

I mixed play sand (right out of the sand box) with baking soda. I used about 4 cups of sand, 4 cups of baking soda, and a little water to moisten it, and my kids couldn't tell it wasn't just sand - which made it all the more special when I set Bo up with a bucket of  "Fizzy Sand Dough," a gallon of vinegar and some water containers.


The best part? Besides that it kept my little busy for quite a long time, is that that the "fizzy sand dough" kept on fizzing every time he added more vinegar, until he used up the whole gallon of vinegar.

This post is a part of the Best of the Best Sensory Doughs: 12 Months of Sensory Dough!  On the 12th of each month, we will share a different sensory dough.
