I know, first hand, that buying play dough for a toddler can get expensive! They love it but they also love to not put lids on the containers and the dough dries up. This is why I have given home made play dough a chance. I have found a post on a blog that did all of the research for us and found us the best play dough recipe!

This Fall, you can have children count and make apples out of play dough! If you laminate these play dough mats, students can count the apples in then ten frame, trace the number with a dry-erase marker, and then add that number of apples to the tree.
Hope your kiddos have fun making apples!
