Little Bee loves spending in the kitchen with me and obviously wants to do everything that I do. Sometimes, she is able to help me with things sometimes I’d rather her not help but of course she then feels sad when I tell her that I don’t want her to help me… like I’m kneading dough for bread and she wants to knead too.
During those times, I make a batch of play dough for her so she can do her stuff and I can get on with mine.
125g plain flour
1tbsp cooking oil
colouring of your choice.
- Dump everything in a bowl and start mixing and kneading until it is well mixed and feel quite elastic.
- Put it in a tupperware, cover and chill. I tend to omit the chilling and Little Bee wants it straight away, but after she finish playing, we do put it in a tupperware and into the fridge for use for another day.
I tend to keep it in the fridge for a week’s worth of play and come the weekend I make a new batch for her… it’s not that hard… and it is kind of our weekend routine now.
And below is what she’s busy making at the moment.
