Things you will need:
- 1 C. Peanut Butter
- 1 C. Non-Fat Dry Milk (I have seen people use powdered sugar instead)
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Honey
What to Do: Let your child help you measure and mix and knead the dough. Once it feels good, let your child play with it like regular playdough. (It's even safe to eat).
This will keep well in the refrigerator because it does not get hard if you put it in a plastic bag or container.
You can also add cereals, chocolate chips, sprinkles, and more to add texture and design.
Make Your Own Books
Things you need: Magazines, scissors, glue, markers, several pieces of paper cut the same size, stickers, stapler.
What to Do: Let your child make up a story. Let your child cut pictures and choose stickers (or draw) to make the pictures go with the story. (Or you can let your child do the pictures first, then the story).
After the story and the pictures are finished, staple the pieces of paper to make a book. Put your child's name on the outside and tell him that he/she is the author of the story. Let your child make up a name for the story and you write it on the outside.
Things you will need: Bread, milk, food coloring, new paint brushes, toaster, napkins, small bowls, spoon.
What to Do:
- Mix food coloring and milk together in a small bowl.
- Using a new paint brush, paint the bread slice.
- Toast the bread in toaster.
- Serve on napkin, and let your child see what happens to his/her picture.
