Fine Motor Activity-Making playdough

Making playdough-is a great way to use fine motor skills...along with the five senses.
While making it, the children are seeing, touching and feeling; kneading the dough, smelling the dough-adding kool-aid for scent. This is a great activity to do with a group of children for any occasion at childcare, birthday party or simply at a playdate.

What you need:
1 container
4 cups of flour
2 cups warm water
1 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp of olive oil
optional: paint, glitter for color ,kool-aid for scent
1 ziplock bag
cookie cutters

You mix all the ingredients together, knead the dough and continue adding flour until you get the correct consistency of the playdough. Once its done-hand out the cookie cutters, rollers and have fun....The ziplock bag is a great way to store the playdough.
