Making our own dough

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! On Friday during language through play, we continued with our baking project by creating our own dough.  A couple of students worked with me to create dough! Thank you to Ms. Cruse and Ms. Sandner for the wonderful recipe. It's one you can do at home too!
