Now for the human to do the cooking bit!

here you can add food colouring if desired!
Hey Presto!

Long-lasting play dough, great for children to develop fine motor skills and for sensory fun!

Here are some ideas:
 
Check out these (laminated) play dough mats- they are brilliant- twinkl have a huge range for all different topics!

Dough Disco: put on some tunes and manipulate the dough to the beat. This woman has definitely been taking something but this is the idea! You could add glitters and sequins to the dough and even some essential oils! Its great fun for kids, strengthens fingers for better pencil grip and gives sensory feedback- great for children with Autism!
