Make some playdoh together to play with. You will need
1 cup flour
3/4 cup salt
3/4 to 1 cup water
A few drops of food colouring
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Mix all the ingredients and knead until smooth. Playdoh can be covered and kept in the refrigerator for later use. It should keep for about a week. If it goes mouldy or starts to smell funny, throw it in the bin. Once you’ve made your playdoh, use it to make things beginning with p, e.g. a penguin, a picnic, or a princess. What else can you think of?
Cut some potatoes in half. Use a felt pen to draw a square on the flat surface. Cut away the potato around the square to leave it raised. Now you will need some paper to print on, a paper plate and some poster paint. Pour some poster paint onto the plate and press the potato shape onto it. Then press the potato onto the paper to print a square. You could make patterns using the square and one colour, or you could use different colours, or make other potato print shapes.
