Cinnamon Crumble Playdough- Fine Motors Skill Activity

So it is no secret I love making scented playdough over here.  We have over 30 posts on playdough HERE already.  Today we are adding another fun holiday scented playdough to the list, cinnamon crumble.  While shopping at one of my favorite places, Walmart, I came across cinnamon crumble scent and just knew it would be perfect to try with our favorite playdough recipe.  And, as other everyday moms or caregivers out there may relate, this has been on my to do list for about a month now.  Luckily the chance finally came up for us to make it and it turned out heavenly.

What we used:

flour, cornstarch (others may call this corn flour), cream of tarter, oil, salt,Young Living Essential Oils – Cinnamon Bark – 5 ml (.17 oz), pan, measuring cup & spoon, and mixing spoon.
I do have an old pan I use to cook the playdough in.  It does come clean but I like having one pan just for it.

What to do:

Head over to my White Glitter Playdough Recipe and follow directions.  

I was able to have my oldest toddler help add the ingredients to the pan before I started cooking it.  At the age of 2 yr he was very pleased to have helped in the making of his playdough.   Once I finished cooking it I left it on a plate to cool.  All we had left was to figure out how to play with it.

What I used:

A tray from the dollar tree (my second favorite store) and cupcake toppers from there as well.  These cupcake toppers are perfect for the kids (of multiple ages- my 2 yr and 5 yr got to enjoy this) to stick in the playdough.  Playdough by itself is great for working hand muscles and by adding these fun decorative cupcake toppers it gave the kids an extra way to work on their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.  Playdough is also a great sensory material for its texture and colors.  This one also had a great scent to enjoy.

I  set the playdough tray on their table with 2 extra trays so they could divide out the playdough to play with.  I also printed out some dot marker sheets and used them as playdough mats for the kids to play with.  You can find those here at 3 Dinosaurs Polar Express Pack.

The kids enjoyed playing and we were left with a little mess!  This was a win win for me and the kids.  Maybe you and your kids can enjoy this too.
