More cooking with Kylie

Our therapist has mentioned that playdough would be a great thing to try with Kylie, however I do not like the smell of it at all...yuck! Our therapist gave me a couple of recipes, so we could make our own playdough, and I was up for the task.

I thought it would be another fun thing to do with Kylie and have her help me make it. She helped me dump the ingredients into the pot and mix them up. She had a bowl of Cheerios next to her and she would stop and have a few, and then go back to mixing. I am very surprised we did not have Cheerios in our playdough.

I then added the wet ingredients and put the pot on the stove to cook it all up together. It gets so goopy and then starts to form a ball. I had Kylie help me stir it at first, but I was worried with having her near the stove, so I finished it up. After letting it cool a bit and then rolling it out with some flour, we were ready for our first playdough experience.

I put a plastic tablecloth on the table and got some cookie cutters, and let Kylie have at it. She just looked at it, wondering what it was and what she was supposed to do with it. It was pretty cute.

Here are some pics and then some video of her with the playdough.

Overall she did pretty good, just not all too interested in it. I tried to get her to play with it again, and no go. She already knew about it, and decided she would pass on it.

I don't really care for the smell of this stuff either. I know you can also use Kool-Aid or Jell-O to color it and give it a different scent. I think I will do that next time.


Sophie's Story by Elaine said...

I have always wanted to make playdough. It seems like a fun activity to do with the girls. But I didn't realize you had to cook it.

Sophie did not like playdough at first but eventually came around.

There are also some recipes where you don't have to do any cooking. I will send you some.

I bet Sophie would be so happy and proud to make her very own playdough :)
