“Miss I-Moana caught the Kakamora, popped them into blender and made Crushed Kakamora Playdough. Along came Maui and they happily played with Crushed Kakamora Playdough forever and ever because they are best friends.”
That’s her story anyway and she’s sticking to it!
To say that the child is obsessed with Moana at the moment is a bit of an understatement. Since Friday (while she’s been laying on the couch recovering), we have watched the movie 3 time. Listened to the soundtrack… I’ve lost count and N is now in his Maui character 90% of the time. I guess I should be thankful it’s not Frozen and she is actually learning from it… but still.
Crushed Kakamora Playdough makes for an awesome wee sensory activity. You’ve got the squishiness of the dough as well as the smell and rough texture of the coconut. Get those little fingers amongst it!
What you’ll need
– 1/2 cup plain flour
– 1/4 cup coconut flou r
– 2 tbsp salt
– 1 tsp cream of tartar
– 3/4 – 1 cup water (maybe a little bit more)
– a handful of desiccated coconut
What to do
– Add your flours, salt and cream of tartar to a pot and give it a good stir.
– Pour in 3/4 of and mix until you have a sludgey paste. Add in a little more water if you need to.
– Pop your pot onto the element on medium heat and stir until a dough forms. Sprinkle in a little bit of desiccated coconut.
– Turn your dough out onto a sheet of baking paper and let it cool a little. When it’s not too hot to touch, knead for a few minutes until everything comes together.
– Roll in a bit of desiccated coconut, break out a tray and some toys and get playing!
Will keep in an airtight container providing it doesn’t get outside bits in it from not keeping it on the tray provided!
