Step 1: What You’ll Need
Get your child involved immediately by having him help gather all of the ingredients and cooking utensils that will be needed to make the play dough.
- 1 cup organic flour
- 1 tablespoon organic vegetable oil
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 2 teaspoons organic cream of tartar
- natural or homemade food coloring
- medium-sized sauce pan
- measuring cups and spoons
- wooden spoon
Step 2: Measure the Ingredients
Incorporate math into this project by letting your child measure each of the ingredients. Place the organic flour, organic vegetable oil, water, seat salt, and organic cream of tarter into the medium-sized sauce pan. If you’re using homemade food coloring to give your dough a fun color, add it now, otherwise you’ll add natural food coloring later in step 6.
Step 3: Mix the Dough
Stir the play dough mixture over medium low heat — old children can help, but younger children will need more assistance, since the dough becomes harder to stir as it thickens. Regardless of the age of your children, always supervise them closely when they are near kitchen appliances.
