Fall is here, which means, more pumpkins, more lattes, and more time spent indoors with your littles.
For when you're running out of things to do....introducing
To make your own play-doh combine 1 cup water, 1/2 cup salt, 1 T oil, and 1 T cream of tartar in a saucepan and heat. Add 1 cup flour, remove from heat & stir consistently until the dough forms. Add glitter, food coloring, and robot parts (or whatever is hiding in your tool-box or garage) & see what your kiddo will create!
The cream of tartar acts as a preservative so this play-doh can occupy your kiddos for ALL fall and winter (it should last for the next 6 months).
This helps your little mechanics strengthen their muscles for pre-writing (like their pincer grip) and encourages creativity.
