This is a household favorite. We believe it is important to play. The way a child learns depends on how we as parents instruct them. I find that allowing my child to build things inspires him to be more creative in his ventures. These risks that he takes, while looking at me for approval, are met with verbal and non verbal praise. These praises should be task specific and generously offered. After all, they are free. On this Earth Day be reminded that each child is a gift. Enjoy your day and make a little dough with your little one.

Earth Friendly Play Dough

1 cup flour (not self-rising)

1/2 cup salt

1 cup water

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Mix in saucepan over low heat. (It does not have to heat long.) Dough is ready when it rolls into a ball. Keep dough fresh in an airtight container. If you need to make different colors, add food coloring while mixing over heat.

** I have also added kool aid

Life is a journey.. each event shapes who we are
