Foam Dough

Foam Dough is an awesome sensory dough – super easy to make and super fun to play with. Its somewhere between PlayDough & Cloud Dough/Moon Sand. It feels soft, fluffy and light. Kids of all ages will enjoy it. If you have older kids, let them mix the dough.. They will love it – really fun & messy 😀

What you need

  • 1 cup Corn starch/Corn Flour
  • 1.5 cup Shaving cream
  • 6 drops of Food color (optional)

How to

  • Mix corn flour, shaving cream & few drops of food color in a bowl. Squish the mixture & knead well until it forms a moldable dough.Theres no right way to measure shaving cream. You might just have to eyeball it. 
  • If the dough is too dry – Add more shaving cream.
  • If the dough is too sticky – Add more corn starch. 
  • It gets your hands messy when kneading. But washes off easily. Plus the shaving cream smells so good and feels really soft on hands.

Miss A(almost 3yrs) & Miss D(22 months) had so much fun playing with it. The dough is soft and moldable – worked great with our cookie cutters & other playdough cutters. It can also be crumbled. Miss D liked to make shapes and squishing the dough while Miss A liked it crumbly.

After abt an hour of play the texture becomes exactly like moon sand/ cloud dough.You can play as is or just add more shaving cream and knead. My LOs liked the moon sand/cloud dough texture and played with it as is, until everything was on the carpet and cant be played with anymore.😂 Since we used blue food color, the dough turned out to be icy blue.. I liked the icy blue moon sand idea – Looks cool! Although next time we will take it to our sand table.. (Lesson learnt 😉)

Thats how messy our carpet got.. But, cleaning was easy – just vaccum and its all gone😀 

Storage – Wrap the dough in plastic and it stays good for upto 2 weeks. If you let it dry it becomes powdery – you can use it for sand art projects👍



Hi!! Im Lavanya, stay at home mom of 3 & 2 yr old girls.. My LOs are very active and they need various activities to keep them busy and interested. A monotonous play bores them easily.. Hence, I've started to explore & create activities to keep them occupied - fun & some learning.. This blog is my maiden attempt where you can find simple crafts and learning activities for kids. If you like my page share it with your friends. Also tell me what you think in the comments. 😀 Thanks for stopping by!!
