Sticks and Play-Dough
You can make home made play dough as a cooking activity ahead of time. Go on a walk or in your yard. Forage sticks. Set up a this invitation by simply letting them build with the two materials open ended.
Play Dough Recipe: 2 Cups of Flour 2 Cups of Salt 2 Cups of Water (add food coloring or liquid water colors to create the color desired) 2 TBSP Cream of Tartar 2 TBSP Oil Heat a non stick pan to very low, pour flour, salt, water, cream of tartar, and oil on the pan all together. A little trick we do for the color to evenly disperse is add the Liquid Water Colors or Food Coloring to the water prior to putting it in the pan. Continue to mix the ingredients until it hardens. Typically 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and roll the play dough around on a cutting board until it cools down. Store in Tupperware and enjoy!
