Ian has not been sick, so I wanted to have something fun for him to play with. I came across an easy no cook playdough from Teach Preschool. I halved the recipe and left it uncolored.... I kind of like the looks of it.
For "add-ins" I provided mustard seeds, coriander seeds, fennel, white rice and cloves. These are all things that we keep in our house. (They do indeed have an Indian father!)
I didn't expect this to turn into a learning activity, but he did learn a few things.
I must say that the seeds don't really stick into the dough all that well, but we still had fun playing.
- 1/2 cup salt
