Jungle Sand and Cloud Dough

We continued exploring the jungle theme this week but focussed on textures. This week we 'Jungle Sand'  and 'Cloud Dough'.


To make Jungle Sand, we used:

4 cups of sand, 2 cups of cornflour, 1 cup of water, food colouring and glitter


To make Cloud Dough, we used:

8 cups of plain flour, 1 cup of oil, food colouring and mint essential oil.


We counted the cups of ingredients as we added them to the mixing bowls. We also talked about what was happening and why there was a change in the textures, as we added water/oil to the dry ingredients. After we made the mixtures, we added some jungle animals and other resources to play.
