I love doing hands-on projects with the kids I work with and my own children. There’s just something fun, festive, and exciting to create, experiment, to figure out the-just-right creation we are aiming for (I like to ‘guesstimate’ with my kiddos a lot, and play around with different amounts of ingredients, allowing them to feel what seems right to them and provide as much autonomy in the process as possible). .
Here is the recipe that we used in therapy today, adapted from Best Recipes AU:
2 cup flour
1 cup water
1 TBSP oil
1 cup salt
2 drop food coloring
pumpkin spice mix
Mix together. Adjust as needed.
