Need a fun activity for the first day of school? I am fortunate that my county still "phases" kindergarten kids in small groups for the first three days of school. This gives the teachers a chance to get to know the students in a smaller group setting and help give those students more attached to mommy a smooth transition into school. On these days I cook Playdough with my students. I have a small cooktop and the kids love watching the ingrediants become something they can play with! At the end of the day, students get to take their Play Clay home in a zip top baggie with this recipe attached.
