Valentine’s Day Sensory Oats Recipe

Valentine’s Day Sensory Oats Recipe

Valentine’s Day is here which means time for a fun play-based post with a quick and easy recipe for colouring sensory oats.

These coloured oats make a great addition to sensory play setups. 

I dyed our oats bright red and made up a Valentine’s themed play table for Oskar.

I added some red roses (de thorned of course), novelty buttons, pink confetti, some feathers and the coloured oats. Oskar added in his cars and trains, which I thought was pretty cute.

He loved pulling apart the roses and flicking the oats into the air and spent a good forty-five minutes making a colourful mess before finding something else to destroy. I’d say that’s a win!

Coloured Sensory Oats Recipe

You will need;

  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 3 teaspoons of red food colouring
  • 2-3 teaspoons of water

Directions

  • In a glass bowl add the oats and food colouring and mix, mix, mix until the oats are well coated with colour.
  • Slowly add in the water. Just adding enough water to move the colour around the oats without making them wet or clumpy.  
  • Spread the oats out on a tray to dry.
  • The oats will take about an hour in sunlight to dry or 5-10 minutes in a very low heat oven

Note: If the oats get wet. There’s a really good chance your toddler’s hands will get dyed a lovely shade of red. But that’s all part of the fun!

Have a great Valentine’s Day ️
