Playdough Table Activities close at hand and by the door grab kids’ attention immediately when they enter the classroom. Keep a playdough table, including a batch of homemade playdough (see recipe below), cookie cutters, rolling pins, popsicle sticks, blunt-end scissors, feathers, twigs, dry macaroni, and other craft items near your classroom door. Watch kids’ excitement grow as they experiment with different accessories each week. Non-Toxic Playdough Recipe You’ll need: 2 cups flour 1 cup salt 1 tablespoon alum 2 cups boiling water 3 tablespoons oil food coloring Mix together the flour, salt, and alum. Then add the boiling water, oil, and the desired food coloring. After ingredients are mixed, knead well for about four minutes. You can add a special treat by scenting the non-toxic playdough recipe with extracts of lemon or peppermint (but be mindful of allergies). Store the playdough in an airtight container.
