Looking for playdough for your children? Instead of buying it, why not make your own? Making your own playdough is a lot of fun and it’s easy to involve children in the process.Home made playdough has no harmful ingredients (it contains food colouring if your child has an allergy) and is easy to make. I have provided three easy to follow recipes for the following types of playdough:-
Whilst eating a little will not harm your child, I recommend that you discourage them from doing so.
Making playdough will also assist your children to develop their social skills, as they discuss what they are making and show others their creations (they are using their imagination as they create their masterpieces). They can experiment with different shapes and sizes when they use cutters and rolling pins and they learn muscle control as they roll and squeeze their creations into shape. It can also be good for hand and eye co-ordination but most of all it is enjoyable and gives children a sense of self-satisfaction when they have created something unique to them.
You can split the playdough into halves and then insert different textures into each half.
