 Mrs. J. Taylor,

Hello and welcome to the Nursery classroom

Dough Disco!

Our children have been taking part in Dough Disco each week to help develop their fine motor, gross motor and coordination skills.  We listen to songs that we like and make up new moves together.

This is our fool-proof playdough recipe - you can join in the Dough Disco at home!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • Up to 1.5 cups boiling water (add a little bit at a time, until it feels just right)
  • food colouring (optional)

Method:

  • Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
  • Add food colouring to the boiling water then pour into the dry ingredients a little bit at a time
  • Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
  • Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone
