Make Your Own Play Dough
Summer is the best time to keep your child’s mind and body active. Learning never ends, but we can make it more fun for kids. In fact, we can create opportunities and plan activities that help kids learn without them even knowing it.
One of the best ways to do this is with play dough. Play dough is great for helping your kids build their hand-eye coordination used for reading and writing. In addition, it also organizes the brain, helps with attention and focus, and builds their gross and fine motor skills to prep their brain for higher learning. Any activity that builds the core muscles in your child’s hands and fingers helps them in the classroom. And that is exactly what play dough does!
What we are doing today is creating a homemade recipe for you to make your own play dough at home with your kids. The best part is that it is simple, easy and inexpensive. Give it a shot and have a great time!

3 Tablespoons Alum
