This probably shouldn’t excite me so much because teachers have been doing this forever! But today was my first time making playdough from scratch at home and I loved it! The colors, the consistancey, the ease – who knew?! Well – probably every other preschool teacher but me. But now I see the light! YAY! It feels so diferent from store bought playdough – much more plyable and smooth. Just great.
I made a batch of lemon yellow and then I made a batch of royal blue. I’m going to give each child a little of each color to play with so they can see how it makes green. Since St. Patrick’s Day is comming up, I thought this would be a good activity to use to show color mixing. Not to mention build fine motor skills and give them a chance to be creative! I love playdough – it’s just great! I really hope tomorrow the children are as excited as I am when I show them the playdough I made this weekend! I can’t wait! 🙂
