Citrus Dough

In order to make playing with play dough a more sensory experience I decided to add a bit of zing with the aid of some citrus fruits. Through adding the rind and juice of some oranges and lemons the dough had a wonderful fresh aroma.

We initially looked at and smelt the oranges and lemons and talked a bit about the fruits. The children then got to work on their play. 
As ever the dough became a wonderful creative tool, resulting in fantastic imaginary play with the children pretending to make flowers using cutters, cupcakes and even a caterpillar as well as using the tools to investigate shapes and practice their cutting skills.
