Simple ideas work best. Mr Frog likes playdough. He likes it even if it's pink! (oh, boys, you know!)
So here it is - our simple pink Valentine's playdoug.
I used well known recipe:
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of water
1 tbs of oil
1 tsp of cream of tartar
pink food colouring
When it was cooked I added a splash of my (
best) vanilla body lotion and lots of red glitter.
I collected lots of different texture objects - the seashells, buttons, ribbons, sequins to experiment and explore textures and making patterns and heart shape cutters.
Mr Frog spent long time making sequin's patterns, printing different textures on playdough and decorating his special pink hearts.
This invitation to play takes just few minutes to set up and gives a child lots of opportunities to explore.
