Today in anticipation of the release for the new batman lego movie, we wanted to share a tutorial on how to make playdough. As a previous early years teacher, I remember making playdough every day before the children arrived. I became pretty expert at this by the time Sylvia was born.

Playdough is a really great activity which can help children not only to explore and have fun but to learn and development. There can be many opportunities to develop imagination, ideas, fine motor skills and speech skills whilst playing with playdough.

You can even use playdough to teach maths and science, by counting and measuring ingredients and mixing colours. There are so many opportunities to teach kids with playdough, it’s truly fantastic. So here goes. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and enjoy creating your own playdough.

  1. I love that this recipe is made entirely from edible things too, so you can do this with small children and not have to worry about them sticking their hands in their mouths. I’m going to forward this on to my brother and his family – they have a toddler who would probably love this!

  2. I always made playdough with my kids when they were little and when I was a childcare provider. I think homemade playdough is so much nicer than store-bought playdough, the texture is much softer and more pliable and you can add scents too, which I think is so much fun!

  3. This is awesome! I remember doing this when I was a kid, it was so much fun! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll save it for later, in case I need it one day! <3

  4. My son would love if I did this for him! I’ve never made my own playdough before, but it doesn’t look like it is too hard! I’m going to have to do this soon!

  5. There’s nothing more fun than making homemade stuff with your kids! This play dough is great! I love that you chose to go with the colors in Batman.

  6. The new Batman Lego Movie sounds like a lot of fun! I’m sure the kids will be excited about it. This play dough recipe is great, thanks for the idea! Now the kids and I have more to do when they come over to visit!

  7. I loved playdough when I was a kid. Making it at home looks just as fun as buying it at the store. I am sure your hands get messy with it. Adding toys is what tops it all off. 😊 nice images. Very eye catching. ! ❤
