PlayDough Recipe

Due to our children with severe nut allergies, we ask that you make sure to use a clean bowl and utensils and that you do not use peanut oil! Thank-you in advance for helping keep our children safe!


Dear Moms/Dads/Caregivers

We need your support in making playdough this year. Making playdough is a fun and easy cooking project that you can do with your child at home. S/he will be so proud to bring in his/her playdough to present to the teacher and class. Let your child help you with measuring, pouring, mixing. This activity will give your child the opportunity to use his/her math and science skills and will give you the opportunity to teach him/her about safety around hot liquids.

Please sign up with your child’s teacher(s)!!
