Leprechaun Playdough

Bring a little Irish into your home with this quick and easy St. Patty's day play dough recipe. This is the best play dough recipe I have ever made. You can change the color or the extract to alter the sensory experience of the play dough.

Tid bit of info: Playing with play dough is actually a pre-writing activity. Its very important for children ages 2-4 to play with play dough because it strengthens the muscles in their hands that are needed to hold a pencil. Another way play helps kids learn.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
