Activity: Gingerbread Play Dough 14/11/13

Gingerbread Play Dough Recipe:
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Water
  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • Food Colouring
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Ginger
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
Mix water, salt, oil and colouring.  Add flour and corn flour and knead until all very well combined.

Sam had lots of fun today with the play dough.  For the first time he didn't immediately try and eat it - he instead picked up a rolling pin and started trying to flatten it! He had lots of fun using a fork and knife to cut into the dough, making holes and also cutting it into little pieces. He really enjoyed exploring the play dough tool box and loves the ones that are like utensils the best - forks, knifes, spatulas, etc.

For afternoon dough play - I am going to introduce buttons and gingerbread men cutters, because Sam is 19 months I will have to cut out the shapes for him but it will be nice to see if he can put the buttons on to decorate!
