Fun Play Dough

We 've had a great learning about color RED ( Qiqi) and GREEN(Huihui) through play dough!
Children had wonderful and experience learnings !

ll children develop on their own schedule, while one may be excellent at climbing stairs at 2, another can't but can identify all the letters in the alphabet. Our job is to provide rich , experience filled days not to drill them with facts and skills they aren't ready for. Here are 3 fun ways to work on fine motor skills that allow for exploration as well as fine tuning.

*Play Dough Treasure Hunt

*Play Dough Cutting*

*Pick up a little things

Play dough

Play dough is great and you can use it as a free play activity, just put out lumps of playdough for each child. Add cookie cutters and they are away. If you make edible play dough then you needn't worry too much about the toddlers sampling it.

Edible play dough recipe

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 (3-1/2 oz.) package "unsweetened" Jell-O
  • 2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
  • Mix everything together in a saucepan and cook over a medium heat stirring it constantly to avoid it sticking to pan.
  • Stir until it has the consistency of mashed potato.
  • Let the play dough cool then tip out onto a floured board.
  • You can then knead it until it is dry.
  • Once it is cold store it in an airtight container until you are ready to use it.
