15 Jan TLC Recipe for Winter Glitter Snowflake Play Dough (easy-to-make and safe-to-eat )
At TLC we know creating routines and rituals at home are healthy for families. Maybe your family looks forward to pizza every Friday night, or a night walk in the woods every full moon, or always the choice of two books every night before bed? We have created our own traditions for families enrolled in TLC Play and Parenting classes: the first class of each semester every family receives a board book to be shared at home. In addition, for our group developmental activity, we always play with home-made play dough. Each semester there is a new color and new scent. This winter we started the semester off with glitter snowflake play dough- it is easy to make and of course, completely safe if explored by mouth.
