I’ve been compensated by Johnson’s® Baby for this submit; nevertheless, I’m sharing my very own ideas. All opinions are my very own.
On the final day of preschool final yr, Essley introduced dwelling a sheet of paper with a seashore ball she’d coloured and the reply to a query her lecturers requested about her favourite a part of preschool. Her reply: “taking part in with the play dough.” From all the yr of her first ever preschool expertise, she’d determined that taking part in with play dough was essentially the most memorable a part of it. And actually, I wasn’t shocked. The child loves the whole lot about play dough, from creating mini sculptures to the act of simply squishing it between her fingers. And now that Emmett has (thanks universe) principally moved past the “I have to eat the whole lot I contact” part, he is began to hitch in on the enjoyable too.
Last weekend, I used to be trying by the home, looking for issues we had readily available to make use of for a craft or exercise for the children. I glanced on the sheet of paper Essley had introduced dwelling from college declaring her love for play dough, then noticed our bottle of Johnson’s® Baby Lotion. Suddenly I had an thought – we might experiment with making our personal play dough. It seems that it labored rather well, and it is extremely straightforward to make. There’s additionally a bonus – it makes your fingers all types of sentimental too. This is a extremely implausible exercise because the climate begins to chill off and the little ones are caught inside extra typically. It’s additionally solely three components, and for essentially the most half, it is not messy. And you possibly can’t ask for greater than that with regards to crafts with youngsters, proper?
1 cup Johnson’s® Baby Lotion (any selection)
2 cups corn starch
Pour the cornstarch into a big mixing bowl. Add the Johnson’s® Baby Lotion, and start mixing together with your fingers. The extra you knead, the softer it turns into. Separate the dough into the variety of colours you’d prefer to make it (we did three). Add a drop or two of meals coloring to every items of dough and knead till blended. Play!
This play dough makes for hour or extra of nonstop enjoyable for the children (which is a win for the dad or mum too). And they love the method of creating it as a lot as they take pleasure in taking part in with it afterward. The subsequent time you are at your native Walmart, seize a bottle of Johnson’s® Baby Lotion from the infant aisle within the youngsters’ part (and a field of cornstarch and a few meals coloring if you do not have them at dwelling), and make this tremendous straightforward play dough together with your youngsters.
If you make this enjoyable mission, I would love to listen to what you assume! And for extra inventive child product hacks, take a look at this enjoyable Pinterest board.
