We haven't made play dough in awhile, so when I saw this recipe for apple pie play dough I figured it be a great start to our Apple Week.
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 2 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1 small container cream of tartar
- cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice
- red food coloring
Stir constantly over medium-low heat until it firms up into non-sticky dough. (Tip: don't do this after an "Abs & More" class at the Y. It's a workout in itself!)
Let your dough cool and then enjoy! I thought it smelled just like an apple pie. E said it smelled "sorta" good.
Both girls thought it was a lot of fun!
The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall
Ideal for 2 and 3 year olds, this beautifully illustrated book explains how to "grow an apple pie." Two young sisters describe their apple tree through the seasons. We watch as it changes from a bare tree in winter, to beautiful blossoms in spring, small green apples in summer, and then full ripe apples in autumn... apples just perfect for an apple pie! Also in the tree are two robins who hatch their eggs, raise their chicks, and then teach them to fly. The short sentences and vibrant illustrations will hold the attention of young children, while introducing them to the seasons and lifecycle of an apple.
