Bread Modelling Dough
Show your children the reaction that is made when you add glue to crumbled white bread!
First, grate or crumble white bread into a bowl. Next, add PVA glue a teaspoonful at a time, mixing with your fingers (if you have none, you can use water instead - even better, if you use water you can leave any extra out for the birds to eat!)
The, when the mixture becomes slightly tacky (not sticky), then it is ready. You can model with it and then leave it to air dry. What animals can you make?
In Knowledge and Understanding of the World this term, we have been exploring different materials - comparing how they look and feel and thinking about what we could use to make a rocket ship, an astronaut helmet and an alien planet!
We have also been learning about recycling and how to look after the world. We were really good at sorting all of the different materials to be recycled!
