Blackberry Play dough

Sensory play is a critical part of early childhood development, as you all know. Yet it can be quite cumbersome to keep ideas for sensory play fresh and exciting. I need to spice this ish up!!  So this morning Biscuit and I made some scrumdiddlyumcious blackberry play dough. My mouth was watering, it smelled DELISH!!
Here is the recipe ~ 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 2 tbsp cream of tartar, 2 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 cup warm water, and 1 three ounce package of blackberry gelatin. Cook over MED heat and stir until it thickens into a ball.

It will look like this when it's all done....

Then you need to sniff your magical creation, because it is yummy.

I gave Biscuit cupcake wrappers, candles, pie pans, and other assorted baking goodies to play with.

She made blackberry cupcakes...

and blackberry pie.

Homemade scented play dough is the best!! Click here to see our chocolate recipe!

Happy Playing & Exploring!!
