Playdough is a wonderful, open ended resource for children’s play which is easily made with ingredients from your pantry. Add items such as cookie cutters, rolling pins, bowls, cupcake pans etc. and allow children’s imaginations run wild


Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and stir until dough is soft.  Allow to cool and store in a container in the fridge when not in use.

Promote learning by:

Allowing children to mix, measure, pour, and choose the colour when making the playdough.
