The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, & The Big Hungry Bear (again)

We love this book!  With its strawberry theme, we concocted a yummilicious-smelling playdough for Baby K to explore.
--------------------
*  Story: The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, & The Big Hungry Bear by Don & Audrey Wood  (again)
*  (See another fun post of this blog titled The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, & The Big Hungry Bear.) 
*  Age:  infant 
*  Activity/ Experience:
          1.  Playdough. 
--------------------
  1. Strawberry-scented playdough.   Played with this a lot here at home, and took some to daycare to share with friends too.  Baby K squeezed, patted, manipulated, & tore off little pieces of the dough with great concentration.  --It clearly doesn't taste good though, as she put some in her mouth then quickly spit it back out.  I love how our Sweet Pea is willing to try new things!!  
Here's how we made the dough, using recipes on cooks.com as a guide:
Mix 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup salt, 2 tablespoons cream of tartar, & 2 packages of strawberry Crystal Light.  Add 1 cup water & 1 tablespoon oil.  Stir over medium heat until mixture forms a ball.  Knead until smooth & store in air-tight container.
