Playdough is an excellent fun activity for preschoolers. It strengthens little hands and prepares them for printing.
Instead of buying playdough, you can make your own no cook playdough. Adding different additives increases the fun factor. Your child can roll long ropes and use scissors to snip off pieces.
This particular playdough keeps well in ziplock bags and doesn’t necessarily have to be refrigerated. Here’s our Think Sun Thanksgiving pretend pumpkin pie recipe.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
Orange gel colour mixed in 2 cups of boiling water
1/4 cup oil
Pour boiling water and oil over dry ingredients and combine. I have used a food processor or a mixmaster and even just mixed by hand. It will look liquidy but keep mixing until it forms a dough. Cool. Give the child rolling pins, and foil tart tins. Enjoy! They always giggle when I tell them to tell their mommy or daddy that they can’t eat it even though it smells yummy🦃😊
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE🦃🌞
