[Lets Play] Jelly Play-dough

With the weather getting cooler and feeling the change in the seasons around us we have welcomed Autumn with open arms, I love the hot days I really do.. but I REALLY love the cooler mornings with a warm crisp day... there is something about it isn't there?

With the cooler days becoming more prevalent we are finding ourselves gravitating to more indoor play and with that brings a new mindset... A change in sensory play is needed...

Less water/slime/water bead focused, dirt/sand/mud play & other gross motor sensory things that require more washing (for me). 

We are now focusing our play on more smell/warmth/taste/sight and of course feel sensory play with a focus more on fine motor skills. There will be elements of outdoor play yes... I'm sure a muddy puddle or 2,475,341,385 will be jumped in.

But inside... For this week.

Jelly Play-dough... Oh the sweet/Tangy smell of Lime Jelly Play-dough.

This is something that I have always made. With years spent working in Early Childhood Education I have made PLENTY of batches of play dough... But this, this was always a favourite...

The full bold colours and the awesome smells. Whether it be the sweet smell of raspberry or the tangy-ness of the lime or lemon.

It is an absolute favourite around these parts.


Do you make your own play dough?
