Baby Cereal Snow Dough {12 Months of Sensory Dough}

CYMERA_20150112_200846Last year I watched fellow KBN bloggers post recipes of various play dough. This year I am happy to join in the fun!

We start off with Snow Dough to celebrate Winter!

Snow dough is basically any kind of dough that resembles snow. Here in the South of China we don’t have snow at all so my children never experienced it.

I looked through many recipes online and suddenly it dawned me: I recently bought baby rice cereal for our 6 months old and realized it had milk and sugar in it. So the open pack has been sitting on the shelf for a month as I feltit was too early to introduce such cereal to mini man.
The consistency of baby cereal is quite similar to snow, just much dryer.

So, the ingredients of our Baby Cereal Snow Dough are simple:
– Baby Rice cereal (I used 250 -300 gr pack)
– Enough oil to make the cereal moist (1 used almost full paper cup of sunflower oil ).

Miss A had great time playing with it – she used some of her play dough cutters and play cutlery. I must note that it was quite a messy play, so since it was raining and we couldn’t use balcony, we played in the bathroom.

Mini Man loved watching his sister play and kept trying to reach for the bowl! Since this snow dough is completely baby and toddler safe and if the child ingests it, it is quite safe. The texture is a bit rough and it can turn into an oily mess, but nevertheless it is a fun activity! You can store the dough in a ziplock bag or in airtight container for some days or even weeks.

Cooking series: No egg zucchini slices

I’ve been recently trying to have my blog more organized by creating series of posts. Today I am starting yet another series called Cooking series. Some of these recipes I make together with my daughter and some I make or create for my family’s benefit.

Today’s recipe: No Egg Zucchini Slices.

We do like eggs but sometimes I feel like baking something without them as eggs usually leave a strong odour on everything. The original recipe calls for 6 eggs – it gives the slices different density from the ones I am describing here and different taste, of course.

So I adopted a no egg recipe I found for making muffins and tried it out to make zucchini slices. I liked them and found they are best consumed cooled or even cold!

You will need:

2 cups of flour (I combined regular wheat flour with whole wheat. For gluten-free option – potato flour would also work well!)

2 teaspoons of baking soda

half a teaspoon of salt

1/3 cup of vegetable oil

1 cup of water (here you adjust to get the right consistency)

1 medium zucchini

1 medium carrot

How to make it:

1. Whisk together dry ingredients.

2. Grate zucchini and carrot (I used the larger grater but you can use the smaller one if you wish).

3. Mix vegetables and dry ingredients together.

4. Add oil and water (I also added dill) and mix till you get a thick (but not too thick) enough mixture

                

      

5. Line up a baking tray with baking paper or grease it and pour the mixture on it, evening it out. Bake at 190C for 30-40 minutes. Check by inserting a toothpick.

6. This is what you get!

I hope you enjoy making this recipe! Thank you for reading my blog
