Garden Bin Preschool Craft

Create with play dough while you talk about all the things God made with your child!


Mixing bowl
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of cornstarch
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon of salt
Food coloring
Cookie cutters, small rolling pin, etc.


  1. Mix all the ingredients in the bowl until combined.

  2. Knead the play dough on a flat surface and divide into smaller portions.

  3. Add food coloring to each portion; 10 drops to start, and then more to make the color more vibrant.

  4. Encourage your child to think about things God has made and to then make them out of play dough!
