A New Material – Sand Dough

A new material came to class today – Sand Dough! Super easy to make and fun to explore. The Teddy bears used powdered tempera paint to create concrete like constructions, molding and cutting the rougher sandy dough. While in PlayPals the addition of shells and nature materials took their brown dough to the beach for sandcastles and shell print explorations.

Here is the recipe to try at home, just mix all the ingredients, no cooking!
