Sensory Play: Edible Unicorn Poop

Little unicorn lovers everywhere will go crazy for this unicorn poop recipe. A great sensory play addition. Edible play dough doesn’t just evoke their different senses; touch, smell, taste it also takes the stress out of them putting it in their mouths.

Make Your Own Batch

To make your own batch of unicorn poop you will need:

1 cup of oats

1 cup of flour

1 cup of small marshmallows

2 cups of water

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3 teaspoons of food colouring – we used blue icing paste this time but to go completely natural try adding beetroot juice to make a pink colour


1)Add the above ingredients to a bowl in the order that they are written, mixing as you go.

2)Use your hands to work the mix into a dough

3)Add extra flour if the mix is too wet and more water if it’s too dry.

For messy play, keep adding water to make the dough gooey and squelchy! Just remember although this dough is edible, it’s not advisable to let children eat the dough. And as with anything like this they should always be supervised when playing with it.

Now you’re good to go, have fun!
