Almond Playdough and Natural Loose Parts

Jake is home from school with Chicken Pox and it's a rainy day, so playdough to the rescue it is!
I used our normal easy no cook play dough recipe from The Imagination Tree, and added a few drops of almond oil for an irresistible fragrance.

I set out some natural materials to enhance the play. A mixture of textured objects to make prints with, stick in the playdough and create with.

The playdough was still warm and smelled lovely so the children got stuck in straight away! :)
They enjoyed seeing the shapes and patterns the different objects made in the play dough. 
A lovely, simple activity for anytime and any age. Try it out this week, what materials will you add to your play dough?
