After today, most kiddos will be off from school for Christmas break for a couple of weeks. This is a great sensory activity to help with filling time. Play dough is lots of fun and it can be very soothing to roll it out, knead it, etc. Add some cookie cutters and make “cookies” or hide beads or small toys in it for some fine motor fun!
This recipe is super easy and it smells really good. The ingredient list is short:
- Cranberry sauce (the smooth kind, NOT the whole berry)
- Corn starch
And the directions are super simple too! All you do is mix equal parts cranberry sauce and cornstarch until is becomes a workable mixture with a dough-like consistency. It’s a unique and festive play dough, perfect for Christmas time.
