Under the Sea Play Dough Recipe
Under the Sea Play Dough Recipe: Easy to make no cook play dough recipe!
Just add Glitter and Sea Creatures for hours of Fun!
Makes a large batch!
This Play dough recipe usually takes me about 10 minutes to make and last in my classroom for about a month. I start by set my water on the stove to boil. While waiting for it to boil mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the oil and food coloring to a measuring cup, I like to use glass two cup so when I add the hot water I can see if I need more color. When your water is boiling add it to the measuring cup I mix it to see the color then add it to the large bowl. With a large spoon mix the dough when ready I drop it onto the counter and kneed it. If it seems dry add more oil to wet add flour. I keep the play dough in a zip lock gallon bag.
Here's where the Frogs really have fun! Using some salt and pepper shakers from the Dollar Store the Frogs add glitter. It looks messy but really the play dough picks it all up and in the end your play dough sparkles! We also added plastic Ocean creatures, the Frogs loved stamping and hiding them in the Play Dough for a friend to find.

We've Had a Whale of a Year Ocean Bulletin Board
We've Had a Whale of a Year Ocean Bulletin Board is the perfect feeling for our last school year Bulletin Board! It's hard to believe we are at the end of another school year! We've Had a Whale of a Year Ocean Bulletin Board combines our Letter of the Week "W"
and our Ocean Classroom focus. To start the bulletin board I used two different colors of blue for our Ocean.
To complete the bulletin board there are three art crafts. Watercolor and Epson salt sail boats
, Paper Plate Whales and easel Watercolor art. At Circle we read The Story of Jonah and the Whale.
Paper Plate Whales
While dreaming on Pinterest one day I came across these cute Paper Plate Whales at www.Krokotak.com
It is truly amazing how many things you can create with a simple Paper Plate! Due to the age of my Frogs I cut out the whale shape visit Krokotak
for how to cut, the rest was all Frogs. The best art is when they can give their creation their own look so I like to give as many choices as possible. Let's get started, here is a list of the supplies I used.
- Paper Plate
- Large google eyes
- stamp pads (Blue, Purple and Green)
- sea sponge
- Glue ( I love coloring it so we had Blue, White or Black)
- White scrap paper
Our classroom focus this month is all things in, on and around the Ocean, for this reason we used sea sponges to stamp our Paper Plate Whales. Not only was it fun to touch it gave a cool pattern to the paper plate.
Being at the end of the year my Frogs know how to get into it, I love to just sit back as watch them work. Some gave their Paper Plate Whales smiles, each one was truly unique I love that! My Frogs only needed a little help with the blow hole. For this I gave them a small piece of white scrap paper and they cut lines down the edge, they then rolled it and taped it together.
When finished the Paper Plate Whales can stand on their own. I added them to our We've Had a Whale of a Year Bulletin Board! To finish the bulletin board we made Watercolor and Epson Salt Sail Boats
At the easel the Frogs were free to create Watercolors with Ocean colors I then had them cut into to wave shapes to finish the board!
