Fun with Learning
Flour, water, salt, oil and food coloring these are the ingredients for homemade play dough and homemade fun!!! As I was making my rounds in the classrooms today I happened upon a group of children who were about to partake in some good old fashioned fun, making play dough. The teacher had put some flour on the table and they were having a great time rubbing their hands in the flour and feeling the texture. I discussed with them where flour came from. One child's response was "out of the garden." She was very pleased to find out that her guess was almost right!! Next they enjoyed rubbing their hands together to make it "snow" and then writing their letters in the flour on the table. All of these wonderful learning opportunities before the actual activity of making the play dough even started.
