edible sensory dough

Here’s a recipe for edible sensory dough that only needs 3 ingredients and will smell and feel great! Kids and grown ups can make this together and experiment with coming up with just the right texture.

Three Ingredient Edible Sensory Dough


  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 1 (6 oz.) box strawberry Jello
  • 4 Tablespoons water (or more if desired)


In a large bowl mix together corn starch and Jello. 

Slowly add in water, one tablespoon at a time, until mixture comes together to form a dough. You can add more water or cornstarch if needed. 

If you make a thick dough, you may want to finish kneading it together by hand. 

Play and enjoy!
