We started off with fruity play dough. I made strawberry and lime.
This is a great recipe.
Fruity Play Dough
- 1 cup flour
- 1 package Kool-Aid (any flavor)
- 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup salt
- 3/4 cup boiling water
(the original recipe called for one cup of boiling water, but I found it made the dough too loose- aim for 3/4 cup and add more if needed)
Then we shot off a rocket. You can hear it, see it and smell it. Plus, it is just fun to do.
Then we worked on a page from our 5 senses book.
"Smell- My sense of smell helps me learn how things smell."
We painted coffee filters, let them dry and decorated them. Finally sprayed the flower with perfume.
And for snack I made Jello jinglers, they are so fun with the senses unit.
