Our inspiration came from Crystal Underwood's blog post featured on A Growing Jeweled Rose. It was unmistakable fun, sensory exploration.  One little pair of little feet did so much exploring and investigating that her feet collected little potato cakes. 

This activity comes highly recommended by the Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek community of kids!

Edible Gluten Free No Cook Playdough

Up Date 2/10: gluten free playdough and kids

Gluten-free play dough was pretty fun. We had a great time with the lumpy stick mess I made.  We used natural spices and veggies to tint the dough. Turmeric was my favorite because of it cam out so bright.  We also used the juice left in a can of sliced beets, paprika and cocoa for pink, orange, and brown.
