30 Taste Safe Doughs for Babies and Toddlers

As much as we love sensory play, play doughs are an area we haven’t really explored a great deal. This is mainly due to Buddy’s determination to eat everything in sight! Traditional home made play dough has a reasonably high salt content, so I was really eager to tap into the fantastic minds of the Kid Blogger Network. I asked them to share their ideas for Taste Safe Dough for Babies and Toddlers and this is what they came up with!

Please note – This post links to lots of other blogger’s sites. If you want to try their dough and are unsure about the ingredients, suitability or safety of the dough, please take a moment to check out the disclaimer policy on that page and contact the recipe creator for more detailed advice if required. Feel free to also check out my Disclaimer.
