Make Scented Play Dough
Preschoolers can spend hours creating with play dough. Here's a quick trick to put a fresh spin on an all-time kid favorite. Add in a packet of Kool-Aid powder and your play dough will smell like cherries, grapes, oranges, or strawberries! Your child will be fascinated by her new set of fragrant play dough, but she'll also be giving the muscles in her hand the workout they need to get ready for all that writing, drawing, and cutting she'll be expected to do in kindergarten. This activity is easy and fun, and it's sure to bring a smile to your child's face!
