A fun way to encourage learning is to use play dough–with the great scent of chocolate–to form letters or numbers.  Have older children create a fun picture or even reproduce a form that you’ve made.  It is also a great way to teach shapes.  Learning can be fun and the summer is a great time try some creative learning  techniques.

Chocolate Play Dough
1 ¼ cups plain flour
½ cup cocoa
½ cup salt
½ Tablespoon cream of tartar
1 ½ Tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup boiling water

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add oil and boiling water stirring quickly.  Mix well.  Cool before playing with it.  This is NOT to be eaten!  Store in air tight container.
