Dough disco

Dough disco, is a great way to build and strengthen

our muscles in our growing hands.

Above are some videos to give you some ideas but we love to

put on our favourite songs and move and grove to them. 

How to make play dough 



         2 cups all-purpose flour 

  • 3/4 cup salt
  • 4 teaspoons cream of tartar 
  • 2 cups lukewarm water 
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (coconut oil works too)



  • Stir together the flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large pot. Next add the water and oil. If you’re only making one color, stir in the the color now. 

  • Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the dough has thickened and begins to form into a ball. Remove from heat and then place inside a bowl, gallon sized bag or onto wax paper. 

  • Allow to cool slightly and then knead until smooth. If you’re adding colors after, divide the dough into balls (for how many colors you want) and then add the dough into the quart sized bags. Start with about 5 drops of color and add more to brighten it. Knead the dough, while inside the bag so it doesn’t stain your hands. Once it’s all mixed together, you’re ready to PLAY.
