As a stay at home Mommy of two little girls (2 and 4 years old), I love to make learning FUN! Play dough is fun and so easy to make that we usually make it every month! This month we decided to make some Pumpkin Spice Play Dough for our Fall learning experiences. Ready to make some yummy smelling Play Dough?
* 2 Cups flour * 2 Cups warm water
* 2 Tbsp. cooking oil * 1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
* 1 cup salt * red + yellow food coloring = orange
Mix the water and the food coloring together. Add the other ingredients to a pan and mix in water. Cook on medium to high heat and stir until play dough thickens and forms into a ball. Kneed for a couple of minutes. That's it! You can store in a plastic bag or container and it will last a long time!
Since dramatic play is so important in a child's life, the girls love making pumpkin pie straight from their little kitchens. Notice the cute little crimping on the edges:)
