Hello early childhood readers!
I'm a fan of play dough in preschool and Kindergarten. Here's why:
But play dough can be expensive. It also needs to be replaced often. My tip for you is to ask parents to make it! I've included a note you can send home that requests help and provides an easy recipe. I've been sending this same recipe home to parents for over twenty years.
Print the black-and-white version to send home as needed. As an alternative, print the color version, laminate it and send it home. (Sometimes I send the cream of tartar and food coloring with the recipe in a ziploc bag. Most families have the other ingredients on hand.) Get the pages here.
If you like this tip or have a great play dough idea, leave a comment. I'd also be delighted if you would follow by blog!
