I can't say enough great stuff about Winzler. My daughter has gone from a child who dreaded going to preschool to a kid who wakes up every day hoping it's a school day. The teachers are thoughtful, ...professional, and caring. I have seen so much positive growth in my child especially in her ability to think and reason. She is always surprising me with things she's learned at school. I appreciate all that the director and all the teachers and assistants have done for my family. I will miss having her go to Winzler and wish we had more time together! See More

Did you know making play dough is simple, inexpensive, and a great opportunity to play and explore while incorporating science, math, language and literacy, and fine motor development?

Here is our favorite cook play dough recipe:

1 cup flour...
1 cup water
2 teaspoons cream of tartar (found in the baking or bulk section)
1/3 cup salt
1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
food coloring (optional)
you can make it scented by using essiential oils, peppermint extract, or spices like cinnamon or nutmeg

Children can help with these steps: Gather all ingredients. In a medium to large sauce pan measure and add all dry ingredients. Mix together. Combine all wet ingredients in a measuring cup (including food coloring and any optional scents). Once combined in measuring cup add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix well. Adults only: Turn on stove heat to low and stir - the play dough will begin turning into a solid. Keep stirring until it resembles play dough. Take off heat and let cool. Warning playdough will be extremely hot!

After the play dough cools completely - have fun! You can use household items such as muffin tins, non sharp butter knives or plastic knives, forks, rolling pins, kid friendly scissors, cookie cutters, and more!

Play dough can be kept in a ziploc or air tight container.

There are so many opportunities for rich language to naturally occur during this activity. While making play dough and playing with play dough, try asking your child some of these questions:
What will happen if we mix this red water with this yellow water?
-What do you think will happen when we pour the water into this bowl?
-What do you think will happen when we put it on the stove and heat it?
-How does the playdough feel? (This is a more open-ended question than, "Is it sticky?" or "Is it soft?")
-Can you roll your play dough? Pinch your play dough? Make a ball with your play dough?

Enjoy! If you make play dough at home we would love to see a photo in the comments!
