Moon Playdough

Moon Playdough is part of our ongoing Outer Space learning project. It's easy to make and keeps child occupied for long time :) 

It's a simple and well-known  playdough recipe we've used forever with few add-ons to make it more of the moon.
Simple mix:
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1 table spoon of oil
1 cup of water
few drops of black and blue food colouring (gives nice moon-like or asteroid colour)

Heat the mixture in a pot until all ingredients bound, take out and knead the dough until smooth. Add silver and gold glitter. And ready to play!


"It's a moon rock!!" said Mr Frog when he saw it. 

We added some shiny stars and sequins, shape cutters and common playdough stuff. And we had lots of fun making the rockets, stars, planets, aliens....and whatever else you can think of! 
Mr Frog created scenes on the card and we used them for outer-space story telling.
In the meantime we talked about different outer space objects and phenomenons
