Making play dough from a few simple natural ingredients (and by adding some fun optional additions) will delight your little one. We will have some messy fun mixing up the natural ingredients with our hands! From pretend cooking and meal making, to rolling, cutting shapes and pressing objects, possibilities are endless. We may add pasta, beads, or a bit of nature with leaves, sticks & feathers to play with and create little forests or islands, people, animals or an abstract masterpiece. We will bring out the wooden spoons, bowls, muffin tins, cookie cutters, rubber animals and dinosaurs as well to create play lands or a pretend restaurant!
Children will have fun while building strength in those little hands and working fine motor skills as well as sharing their creations!
This activity includes your child’s participation in every aspect of the project from creation to a final piece of art or an island of play dough adventure! Your child will also be able to save the extra play dough in a reusable container for another day. They will also learn that they can be creative with natural ingredients from your own kitchen!
