Sugar Aunts: Home Made Play dough...and a fine motor activity

Home Made Play dough...and a fine motor activity


 We made a batch of play dough recently,
and used a basic recipe...
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cup salt
3 1/4 cup water
3 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp cream of tartar
food coloring
Mix the dry ingredients in a pot.  Add the wet ingredients and cook for 3-4 minutes until the dough forms.  Plop onto a clean surface and knead for a few minutes.  Separate into portions and add food coloring.  Keep in covered containers/sealed plastic bags.  Dough does not need to be refrigerated.

Vivid Colors in Homemade Play Dough

Want the secret to really bold and vivid colors?  Use Wilton's gel food coloring.  I have a bunch of these that I use for my cookies, and Big Sister had fun picking out the colors she wanted to mix up.


A lot of times, you can find these color sets on clearance (plus add coupons) for a Great discount!



Little Guy had SO MUCH FUN playing with little straw pieces in the red play dough.
What a great

Fine Motor Activity for a three year old!


 He played with this one for a long time...hiding the straw bits in the dough, poking circles, bending the bendable part of the straw... So much fun! 

Enjoy today!
Colleen
