Too Hot

Too Cold

and Just Right

Let's make our porridge be a delight!




Playing with Porridge Playdough

* 2 cups plain flour
* 1 cup salt
* 2 tablespoons oil
* 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
* 2 cups of *boiling* water
* 1-2 cups of porridge oats (oatmeal)

* Mix in the dry ingredients
* Add the oil and stir through
* Add the cups of boiling water, one at a time, stirring vigorously between each cup
* When cool enough, tip it onto a surface and knead it until it stops being sticky
* Add the porridge oats, as many as are required to make the desired consistency
* Give your child an extra tub of oats to add during play.


 This recipe is from the Imagination Tree

Goldilocks has invited her little bears

                      to  come and play

              In the art room, just for today

There will be bowls from big to very small

    To fill with porridge for them all.


Touching things, “Oh, so hard.” and “Oh, So soft.”

             The little bears will learn a lot.

        Childhood slips so quickly away

         So Goldilocks knows to cherish these days

 C    Create:  Students will use homemade play dough to sculpt  (roll,  pat, pinch, shape) their ideas inspired by "Goldilocks and the Three Bears."


A     Articulate: Students will discuss the textures (dry, soft, sticky)  while they create their                                              sculptures


F.    Finding Connections: Students will discover Claes Oldenberg and Coosje van Braggen's 

                     "Spoonbridge and Cherry," sculpture at the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens.


E. Evaluate:  Students will evaluate their sculptures. After thinking about how they used textures and forms, they can show with their thumbs how they did. Thumbs up = terrific. Thumbs in the middle = just so so. Thumbs down = not so good.
