Makes 3 ½ cups
Recipe by our favorite 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Gilbert
We were given this play dough recipe by my oldest daughter’s 4th grade teacher. She had a brilliant idea for the kids to make it as a way to learn about fractions. It certainly did the trick! My daughter loved making and playing with the play dough! And it made learning fractions a whole (pun intended!) a lot more fun!
Thank you, Mrs. Gilbert, for such a creative and memorable lesson and a great recipe!
Here’s what you need
2 cups all-purpose flour

Here’s what you do
All of my girls had the best playing with it and my oldest even made a geode that she cut open to show all the different colors. The possibilities are endless!
