Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat and mix together until the play dough congeals and forms a ball. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Use a little flour and help your toddler roll out the play dough, then use plastic cookie cutters to cut out shapes. She can also use flowers and leaves to decorate her creations.
BONUS LEARNING: As well as being fun, playing with play dough can be therapeutic (it’s a good game when a little ‘quiet time’ is in order), it helps strengthen little fingers and hands, and develops your child’s imagination.
