Everyone loves playdough!
Homemade playdough is so simple and very easy to make and you get hours of fun from it. I used these ingredients and it took less than 30 minutes to make.
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of salt
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- food colouring (optional)
- scents (optional)
I mixed the dry ingredients together first then the wet ingredients, I sprinkle a little flour on the worktop and roll out the dough until light and not sticky. There are so many activities you can do with playdough.
It is perfect for fine motor skills, imaginative play, maths and communication. I make playdough mats to help guide play with my children.
Moon dough is perfect for babies especially as they like to put things in their mouths. unlike playdough it does not have salt in it. I used 1 cup of baby rice and 3 tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix together and that is it, perfect sensory activity.
