Christmas Pudding Playdough - recipe and song

TDAH - Christmas Pud playdough recipe and song

Christmas playdough is great for keeping little hands of all ages busy, and exploring all the senses (except taste!). Using cocoa will contribute to the smell, though it needs quite a bit, to add much colour - if you have any food colouring, a few drops of e.g. red and green will create brown. 

Playing with the playdough is great for strengthening fingers, which helps control of crayons and pencils, needed for later writing.

There's also lots to talk (and sing!) about - whether it's about what you're doing or making up stories about the things you create - which is one of the best ways of supporting young children's learning.
