With big sister back at school last week, little sister and I have had more
time to jump back into our Preschool at Home activities.
Our most recent was inspired by My Montessori Journey's
I liked the idea so much I even shared the recipe with "C"s preschool teacher
for their apple unit next month.
I improvised my own recipe
by adapting our usual Kool-Aid play-doh recipe
and adding some Nutmeg, Allspice, and Cinnamon to the mix.
We worked on a tray to prevent any staining or mess on the table/floor.
"C" enjoyed learning how to pinch off small amounts of play-doh and
roll them into little crab-apple-sized balls.
Then she pushed a small stick/twig in the top as a stem and added a silk flower leaf.
Super cute and fun.
Kept her entertained for a good 40 minutes.
Mama had fun too and it smells so yummy!
No Cook Kool-Aid Play Doh Recipe:
1 Packet Sugar-Free Red Kool-Aid Mix
1 Cup of Flour
1/2 Cup of Salt
(for the apples we added a dash of
Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Allspice)
3 Teaspoons of Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Boiling Water
Mix dry ingredients;
then stir in oil and boiling water,
keep stirring for a minute or two --
once it cools down a bit pull it out of the bowl
and knead into a ball. Store in an air tight container.
