Caramel Playdough for Pretend Play

Do your kids like to have pretend play tea parties or bake shops? If so, this playdough will make a perfect sensory addition to their dramatic play!

Add all the ingredients to a pot and stir together with a wooden spoon. Once combined, put the pot on the stove over medium heat and stir continuously with the wooden spoon. Once a ball forms you can take it off the heat and transfer the playdough to a bowl. Once it's cool enough to handle knead it to the perfect consistency. It will feel a bit sticky at first, but after kneading it will be perfect!

When you're ready to use it in play time you can lay out the whole ball of it, lay it out flattened down, or in little bite-sized pieces ready to use for pretend play. You can set it out with the tea set as an invitation to play as well.

When not in use store in an airtight container like a Ziploc bag. It should keep for a few-several months.
