Make your spellings out of playdough!

The spelling strategy idea for this week is Playdoh Spellings - make your spellings out of playdough!

Below is a recipe to make playdoh, should you wish to use this strategy at home.

You will need:

1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
½ cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup water with food colouring added
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional but it makes the play dough smell nice!)

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan, and stir over a medium heat until the dough forms into a ball. Allow to cool, and then knead until smooth. 

Store in an airtight container (a Ziploc bag with the air pressed out is good).
