Preschool At Home: Apple Themed Play Dough Recipe and Activity

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
Apple Play-doh

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.

Happy Play-doh-ing!
