Christmas Tree Play Dough

Little N was very excited to have her friends over today for a festive play date before the big day. I set up some Christmas Tree play dough decorating.
2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of salt
2 cups of boiling hot water
2 table spoons of cream of tartar
1 table spoon of oil
Food Colouring
Add all ingredients to a large bowl, adding the boiling hot water last. Mix well, waiting till mixture has cooled before mixing it with your hands. Working the mixture together, it will soon form lovely homemade play dough.
When I set about making this last night I didn't have any green food colouring in so I used yellow and blue instead. It made a lovely green colour and in fact I prefer it more so.
Available to play:
- Sweet wrappers
- Silicone cake cases
- Pom Poms
- Pipe cleaners
- Candy Canes
- Snowflake confetti
- Glittered pony beads
- Play dough cutters and rollers
- Candy Canes
- Gift Bows
- Gift ribbon
- Baubles

Today we had Little N (2 years) Little J (3 years) and Little H (1 year) over to play. I had adapted this a little for Little H as some of the items wasn't safe for him to handle just yet, but it didn't mean he couldn't join in.
Little H sat in a high chair at the table and I pressed a big lump of play dough down onto his tray, this meant that he could still feel the play dough but it was much harder for him to put into his mouth. I was sat next to him and kept a close eye.
Little N and Little J sat at the table and used Christmas tree shaped trays for their play dough decorating.
Little J set about making a Christmas tree using a tree cutter. Little N also wanted a tree but was unsure how to do it. Little J offered to help out straight away and Little N was really thankful. Using all the decorations they added different colours and textures to their trees.
Little J then began making yummy cakes and sweets too using the cake cases and sweet wrappers. He enjoyed sharing them out around everybody.

Little H enjoyed using the play dough tools and he stood the candy canes up in the play dough.
