Play Dough

In our quest to use the most non-toxic and eco-conscious products out there, I have decided to make play dough for Little M! I think this falls under the category of things I am more excited about than he is, but I just love art projects. I found a wonderful resource for home-made play dough here, including using natural sources for coloring the dough.
So far, we have only made yellow (with turmeric) and red (with beets). Little M tends to regard the dough intently, smush his fingers into it and then throw it on the (paper-covered) floor, but he does still seem to enjoy the experience. We will continue to explore with art – our next project may involve paint (yes, with a toddler). Will keep you posted…
