The children have been talking about The gingerbread man, so we suggested making some special gingerbread cloud dough. Together, we looked on the internet to find a recipe.The children worked well, following the adults instructions to make the dough.
- 4 cups of flour
- 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons of ginger
- Half a cup of vegetable oil.
They used their hands to mix the ingredients together before tipping it into a tray.
Using their sense of small they experienced the sent of different spices, cinnamon and ginger.
The children explored the dough making marks with their hand and a paint brush. The Older children practiced writing some of the letters in their name.
Why not try it with you child at home…
