Melting Fizz Chia Frozen Dough

Share on Pinterest

We have loved our various play doughs over the last 2 years that we have taken part in this series! I always try to make the sensory doughs taste safe because my younger children love to put things in their mouth still.

Catch up on all our sensory doughs here!

Today’s dough is “frozen dough” they physically frozen type not the movie. I decided we would make a little science experiment of it and use some of our chia.

To make frozen dough you will need:

  • 3 tablespoons chia
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 heaped tablespoons baking soda
  • optional food coloring
  • ice cube trays / toothpick
  • 1 cup vinegar

I used 3 tablespoons of chia in a cup of water and let it sit on the counter for about 3 hours to gel up. I then mixed in 4 heaped tablespoons of baking soda and poured the mix into ice cube trays. Once in the trays I added 1 drop of food coloring per cube and mixed with a toothpick.

The cubes came out with a almost half colored look which i rather liked. 😉frozen dough

The first thing the kids did was build towers and walls with the cubes. building with ice blocks

I then got the vinegar out and the children squirted it over the cubes. This was a great time to talk about our previous baking soda experiments! The fizzing dough we made awhile ago was instant in its fizzing where as this one was a slower reaction because of being frozen.frozen fizzing dough

The kids watched in fascination as the cubes just kept on fizzing and bubbling. This fizzing dough is a long lasting fizz!

What does it feel like?

We then picked up the cubes to feel them. They were cold as expected BUT we could feel the cube fizzing on our hands, it was like a light tickle and because of the chia gel the cube stayed mostly together until squeezed by the kids.

As the frozen dough melted the chia came off and floated around with each having their own colors! It made for a beautiful looking bin.

The kids continued poking the STILL FIZZING frozen dough with much delight. I did provide a dish towel so that they could wipe their hands on when the vinegar water became too cold and they needed a break from it. I think the cold is the only downside to this experiment.melting fizz chia

Once everything was mush we could still see fizzing bubbles! This was a fantastic experiment and I loved how the frozen dough just kept on fizzing away. We are going to be trying this dough as non frozen in a few days time to see how it does too!melting fizzing chia frozen dough
