What to Do

  • Making the Playdough

Begin by making a batch or two (we typically make one batch per child) of our one-pot playdough. This is our tried and true recipe that is super easy to make. After you’ve made your playdough, allow it to cool a few minutes and then carefully plop it onto a sheet of parchment paper. While it cools, you can take out your additional supplies needed for this cinnamon playdough activity and place them in your divided tray.

Once your playdough has cooled enough to handle, simply make a bit of an indentation in your playdough, add 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon in the middle of your playdough, and fold your playdough over and over until it has been incorporated. Note: I’ve read about the dangers of cinnamon powder to children if inhaled, so I keep the cinnamon away from the kids but once it’s mixed into the playdough it’s safe.

  • Cinnamon Playdough Playtime!

Once your playdough has cooled and the cinnamon added, place it into your divided tray, along with the other materials, and invite your child to play. We made a simple invitation to play and set out some glass stones, pom poms, mini rolling pins, cookie cutters, and gems. Miss 17 months really enjoyed pressing pom poms and gems into her playdough.
