Learning Colors With Homemade Play Dough


On Monday I made play dough with Caleb.  We made "snakes" and shaped them into letters.  The girls all stopped what they were doing and wanted to play as well.  Play Dough is so fun!


Caity got right in there.  She was happy at the table for over an hour.



This morning Mailee and I made a huge batch of play dough, enough for everyone to get three big balls.
We made the three primary colors.


We cut each color into three.  



Then we mixed!!


Caity mixed all her colors together.
She was really proud of her tie-dyed play dough!


Look what we ended up with!
{See how the primary colors ended up being smaller? If I were to do it over, I would make one chunk a little bigger in each primary color}


Nice mixing Maddie!


Then we made rainbows.  Caleb is a pro at rolling "snakes"!


Mikayla made a lovely scene.

We have a lot of other play dough activities that we want to get do. 
 I can't believe I have been a mom for 11 years and never made my own play dough!  It is so much fun!

This is sooo funny! I was just talking to a co-worker today about play-doh and I totally remember making it! Your kids are so blessed to have such a crafty and sacrificial mom (being a homeschooler)...I am sure I will consult you one day down the road for advice!
