Dough games are our new topic of study. But today we will not just play with the dough, we will try to keep the smell of eucalyptus in it!
This is not surprising: it has already become common knowledge that children who have better fingers work also succeed in learning literacy, speech cultures, they start to read faster.
smell with dough
It is known that the strengthening of children's fingers occurs when a child molds from clay or salt dough. Therefore, we recommend the inclusion of such classes in preschooler education at home. And for a change, you can make not ordinary, but flavored color dough.
Games with a test
• 2.5 containers of flour;
• 0.5 containers of salt;
• 3 large spoons of sunflower oil;
• 2 large spoons of tartar (citric acid can replace it);
• 1.5 boiling water tanks;
• green and yellow food coloring ( to change the juice of greens and carrots);
•lemon and eucalyptus essential oil.
Mix flour, salt, vegetable oil and citric acid thoroughly. Slowly pour in the boiling water, quickly kneading the mass until it becomes uniform.
Divide the dough into two halves. Add green paint and eucalyptus oil to one, and yellow paint and lemon oil to the other. That's all, you can conduct various developmental experiments and experiments for children.

Games with test 2
With the help of flavored mass you can experience by setting how best to preserve flavor. Blind something from the dough (for example, small lemon and eucalyptus leaves).
Games with Test 3
Some of them take to the open air, leave the other part on the table, and the third - tightly wrap in cellophane. After a while, see where the smell is best preserved. Draw conclusions, tell me that the smell is volatile. In the training of a preschooler at home, you can include an introduction to such concepts as molecule, substance.Observing the spread of smell, it is good to demonstrate how molecules are distributed in the surrounding space.
Games with test 4
Also, with color dough, it is good to study concepts such as shape, size, color. Stick objects of various shapes and sizes or squeeze them out with a stencil. Having made some similar, try to group them. When a child works with a specific material, the shape, size, color become more accessible to him.
