Sand Playdough for Hands-on Fun
I don’t like to waste anything and I’m always looking for new and creative ways to have fun with the grandkids. While cleaning out my pantry recently, I ran across a container of Gerber Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry cereal that only had a small bit left in it.
This was one of Carrigan’s favorites. So instead of tossing it in the garbage can, we decided to see if it would work in one of our favorite playdough recipes!
Usually we make cloud dough using flower the the color and texture of the Gerber Lil’ Bits Cereal made it perfect for a beach theme sand playdouugh!
What You Need:
- 1 cup Gerber Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry cereal
- 6 Tbs. Baby Oil
What You Do:
- Pour Gerber cereal into small mixing bowl.
- Add baby oil
- Mix with hands until mixture begins to clump together
- Have fun!
This recipe makes one individual batch, so just double for two kids! Or make as much as you need! It would be great for a summer playdate!
We had so much fun making and playing with our sand playdough. We pretended we were at the beach on a hot summer day and even made a sand castle!
Nestle Gerber products have always been a staple in my house, for both my children and now my grandkids. There are so many varieties of cereals and other products that they never get tired of all the flavors. I love that the cereals are iron-fortified, which is so important for healthy growth and development.
They’re conveniently available at Walmart and and can be used in so many ways from feeding baby to baking in the kitchen to making sand playdough!
Being creative with my grandkids is always a special time. Thanks, Gerber, for being a part of my life for many years!
