who would like to try making their own play dough?
All children at nursery love working at our play dough station. This provides endless sensory fun and allows children to explore different sizes, shapes, patterns and promotes imaginative play.
All you need is-
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup of water
- food colouring
2. Mix food coloring with your water first. Then add the vegetable oil and water with food coloring to a large pot. Mix together. (Food colouring is optional).
4. Cool over a low heat until the dough starts to form and becomes dry.
5. Once it starts to form a ball together and looks fully cooked, take it off the heat. Let the dough cool first before touching.
6. Once cool, knead the dough for 5 minutes to make the dough soft.
Children also enjoy adding different scents to the play dough or textures for example glitters, seeds etc.
You can also follow the above recipe for a no cook play dough recipe using a large bowl missing out the cream of tartar and mix with cold water.
I hope you all have a great day today.
