Making play dough in the nursery

We make play dough using a simple recipe which you could copy at home.  Using play dough (squeezing, rolling, pushing etc.) helps children develop strength for coordination and fine motor skills.  These are essential for using a pen effectively for writing. 

 

Play dough recipe:

4 cups of flour

4 cups of water

2 cups of salt 

1 tub of cream of tartar

8 tablespoons of oil 

Mix it all together in a pot

Put the pot on the ring of the cooker and stir the mixture until firm

Take out of the pot and leave to cool
