We asked Support Workers “what creative activity are you most likely to ‘do’ with the people you support?
The sensory dough was a winner.

Apart from the cooking oil, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
Then add the oil and mix.
Let the dough cool.
You can add different textures- uncooked rice, dried lentils today I added sawdust.
You can add different smells- a few drops of lavender oil.
You can push things into it- dry pasta, twigs, lolly sticks.
