My little boy loves digging his hands through dirt so what could be more fun than some homemade mud play? This mud play dough recipe is so easy to make with a couple of kitchen ingredients. We loved making mud dinosaur eggs out of it!

Homemade Mud Play Dough – Ingredients:

– 1 1/2 Cups of soil

– 1 Cup of flour

– 1 Cup water

Toy Dinosaurs


Step 1. Dump the ingredients into a bowl and knead until it becomes pliable and a dough-like consistency. Add more water if too dry or more flour if wet.

Step 2. Then it’s time to shape, mold and make dinosaur eggs!

Even though summer is coming to a close, what’s great about this fun sensory project is that you can play with it right at home. No need to go outside to dig for mud.

My little guy loved bringing out his rocks and dino collection to make eggs and a home for his fierce friends.

Then of course the trains had to come out because we all know dinosaurs and trains go together like PB&J 🙂

This is an awesome sensory activity for kids who like to get their hands messy and wonderful for imaginative play! You can seal up the dough in a zipper bag when you’re done and bring it out again.
