On Thursday, we worked on our fine motor skills using playdough and popsicle sticks. The kiddos practiced pushing the popsicle sticks into the playdough, using them to flatten it, and pushing and prodding with their fingers.
The recipe I found for this yummy smelling Apple Pie playdough was from here: http://itsgravybaby.com/2012/09/apple-pie-scented-play-dough/
The only change I made was using ready-made apple pie spice instead of the separate spices in the recipe. The texture was perfect, and it was quick and easy to make. Adding essential oils or spices is a great way to add another dimension to using playdough, bringing in their sense of smell.
