Making some playdough seemed an idea way of talking about fireworks, and their sounds, whilst having an enjoyable time.
We made black cooked playdough using this recipe. Previously, I had managed to make some grey playdough so I was fairly generous with the black food colouring. Grey playdough is less than inspiring. We added loads of glittery shapes-the playdough seemed to eat the shapes. Maybe they melted but we used the whole of two little bottles. The glitter was designed to represent colourful fireworks against the black (playdough) sky.
