Love to Learn Preschool - Where Learning is Fun!
Best Ideas
The BEST ideas always come from my preschool parents and children, so I would like to share them with everyone...use these ideas, share them with family and friends, but always give credit to the initial person who came up with the idea. Here's to great ideas!
The Best Play Dough Recipe Ever...
(Thanks to James Slaughter)
 
The secret ingredient here is cream of tartar. This recipe makes play dough that is not grainy like uncooked play dough and keeps for a long time.
 
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 cups water
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup cream of tartar
 
Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan.
Cook and stir over low/medium heat until play dough is completely formed and no longer sticky. Allow to cool slightly before storing in an air tight container or zip lock bag.
 
Variations:
  • Add one to two packages of unsweetened powdered Kool-Aid to your playdough to give it a great smell.
  • Add one can of Pumpkin Pie Spice for Fall playdough.
  • Add a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil for Christmas playdough
  • Add beads for pretend chocolate chips!
 
                                                                  
Kissing Dots
When your preschooler is just learning to put their shoes on by themselves, put dots on the inside of their shoes at the same spot on each shoe...thus when the dots kiss, the shoes are on the right feet!  I am not sure where this idea came from...but Thank You to the parent who suggested this a long time ago...
 
 
Pancakes to Go...
This idea came from Becky Donaldson, Tristan's Mom and I thought I would pass it along...
next time you are making pancakes, make some extra, put them in a container, drizzle some syrup on them and they are ready to go just by heating them in the microwave or eating cold...they would be great in kids lunches because the syrup soaks into the pancake and makes for a less messy snack...I love it!
