Photo Hunters: Four

This week's Photo Hunt theme is FOUR.

Here is a photo of Dima playing with his homemade playdough. He loves to hide things in the dough and he then dig them back out. (this is an activity that is good for his fine motor skills and sensory issues as well) In this photo he is is squishing four bouncy balls into the dough.

I thought I would include the recipe for this playdough. It is the best homemade playdough recipe I have found. It uses Kool-aid which gives it color as well as a really great scent. It is not just fun to play with but also provides plenty of sensory input.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups boiling water
2 packages unsweetened Kool-Aid

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Wearing gloves, knead for 10 minutes. Store in zip lock bag in refrigerator.
(the reason for wearing gloves while kneading the dough is because it is quite warm once you add the boiling water)
