No-cook Edible Play Dough

I am constantly on the run for simple .. DIY activities for lil A πŸ™‚ Though there were many versions of DIY dough on the internet .. I found this extremely simple and effective πŸ˜€

This is completely edible as well ..

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup flour (any flour will do) I used wheat
  2. 1/4 cup salt
  3. 1/2 cup warm water
  4. A few drops of food colouring

Procedure:

  1. Mix the flour and the salt
  2. The food colouring is to be mixed with the warm water
  3. Add the water to the flour stirring all the way.
  4. Knead the dough so that the flour is absorbed. If at all the dough seems sticky, you would just need to add more flour.

And this was the output for us πŸ˜€

The next day when I gave to Aadya .. she was impressed .. Check out what all we did …

 

Shapes, chapati and then our favorite balls πŸ˜›

So when you are giving the dough be sure to give some toys and shape cutters .. I gave her a popsicle stick to cut since we dint have any shape cutters at home right now .. πŸ™‚

Will surely post more ideas and our dough tales in more posts to come ..

Oh and do store it in an airtight container for it to last longer than a month πŸ™‚

Yayyy for parts of the body

I see a lot of posts on fb saying we taught our kids this, that and on and on ..
I wasn’t really interested in joining them.

Aadya at 15 months could say ram ram, govinda and Om namah sivayah!
Om namah sivaya is tough .. She heard me twice in kasi and started saying OM amachiya …..

I was happy!! We dint teach her but just chanting as she loved hearing to mantras πŸ™‚
So I dint really care about the normal jargon πŸ™‚
But aadya had a severe cold and suddenly started pointing out mukka to her blocked nose for asking to clear it.
I dutifully obliged for 3-4 days and then realized she learnt on a body part on her own out of sheer necessity;)
Oh she communicates very well and tries to talk like us πŸ™‚

But when I finally realized she was interested in these body parts we jumped into the jargon
I just showed her the body parts her and mine and told her what they were .. She smiled πŸ™‚
We did this some 4 times in a few days and bang
Today she just showed me my parts as I was saying the various parts names …

Wow!! Amazing brains these kids have these days!
I know its easy for them to learn the first 6 years

I also heard their mind is a plain paper and hence easy for them.

Well this just increased my responsibility in moulding Aadya! πŸ™‚
