What You Do:
- Show your child how to measure using the measuring cup and measuring spoons. Help him mix together 1 cup of cold water, 1 cup of salt, 2 teaspoons of oil and food coloring to create his favorite color in a bowl.
- Slowly have him add the 3 cups of flour and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the mixture and stir until it starts to feel like bread dough.
- Have him place the dough onto the cutting board.
- Help him knead the dough until it reaches the correct consistency.
Helpful Tips: You can eliminate the food coloring if you want the dough to stay white. Also, store the dough in tightly-sealed plastic containers to play with again and again!
