Monday was super busy. Lots of happening ,as usual, but we have manged to make a little project that was beneficial for many kids as well. Apart from chocolate chip cookies that were gone pretty fast, I made a play dough that Amelie transformed into Pretended Foods :). Again- Perfect project for ' Thing-a-Day'
And if you ever make a play dough you never can make a small batch, you always end up with couple of good pounds, so yes all the kids were absolutely happy with our project today . Lots of sculpturing happening today.
Here is the recipe :
Quick Modeling Dough from MaryAnn f. Kohl 'Mudworks'
1 cup cold water
1 cup salt
2 teaspoons oil
3 cups flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
powdered paint or food coloring
1.Mix water, salt, oil, powdered paint/food coloring.
2. Gradually add flour, cornstarch, till the whole mixture looks like bread dough.
3.Knead few minutes.
4.Explore dough freely :).
Store in air tight container for several weeks.If dough gets too mushy add some flour, if it is too hard knead for a while with wet hands.
