Play Dough Dots September 25, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 2:35 pm

The K/1 class came this week and we read Little Blue, Little Yellow.  (Another option is Mouse Paint– also great!)  Such a great little book about mixing colors!  Using play dough in only primary colors, the students explored what happens when they mixed the different balls together.

Need a good recipe for homemade play dough?

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
food coloring

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir nonstop until the dough gets very thick and sticky.  Pull dough out and knead on the counter (careful, it’s hot!) until the play dough is soft and play dough-y.
