We made a batch of winter play dough using glitter and peppermint extract, after seeing this pretty play dough on Pinterest. I used our regular recipe and just added peppermint extract and a lot of glitter.
I printed and laminated the mats from Prekinders. Sassyfras and Juiciness used our Montessori wooden numbers to count "snowflakes" using pasta wheels.
If they press the pasta into the play dough like a stamp it makes a pretty snowflake impression....too far and it gets stuck.
Here are some other ways I've seen this play dough used...
No Time For Flashcards makes "tracks in the snow".
Ten Kids and a Dog made letters with it.
The Imagination Tree (gluten free recipe) made snowballs and stars with it.
