Our Senses – Making Playdough

As part of learning about our senses we used our sense of smell and taste to make playdough.  We made different colours and different scents.  We made a batch using red food colouring and perfume. We made another batch using green food colouring and baby oil.  The last batch was made using a natural food dye (turmeric) and we added ground cumin seeds to create a curry smelling playdough.  We noted that the playdough made with baby oil had a softer texture.  We also all wanted to eat the curry playdough as it smelled delicious!!!
