SENSORY TIME!!!

Oatmeal Playdough!!!

This was REALLY quick and easy and provides LOTS of sticky fun!!

You will need: A measuring cup, a plastic container to mix and store it in, a spoon, food coloring

1 cup of each of the following per child playing :)
     Flour, hot water and oatmeal (1 packet of oatmeal is close to a cup and if its flavored you will make scented playdough!!)


First dump your water into the container. The water should be cooled down so your little one can help you dump it :) 

Then add your oatmeal to the water and stir. It worked out perfectly to let Bug stir it while I got the flour ready!! 


Next dump in your flour and stir

Towards the end it should start to get VERY doughy. You may need to help you little one stir it at this point to make sure it is well mixed.

Add about 6 drops of food coloring and stir until well blended


Now its time to....................... GET MESSY!!!
Have fun!!!
