Fall Dough

With a chilly breeze in the air and pumpkin spice creamer in my fridge, I've got fall on my brain. The tastes, sights, sounds, and smells combine to make fall my favorite season. For this playdough activity, I combined one of those sights and one of those smells.

I made some no-cook playdough and colored it orange. Then, I mixed in a little cinnamon, just enough to cover the salty dough smell. I hadn't intended for taste to be a part of this activity, but Baby Bear did. The face he made with that little taste of cinnamon-y saltiness was hysterical! It wasn't hard to convince him to explore only with his hands rather than his mouth after that. :)

Squishing the dough!
