Dough Disco

28th February 2014

We have been busy getting ready for Monday and we are excited for the Dough Disco!


One of the fun methods we use in school, to warm up the children’s hands for writing is the Dough Disco. This is where our hands dance to music using play dough.

There is a Dough Disco world record attempt on Monday 3rd March at 10am and we are excited that the whole school will be taking part.

The record we are aiming for is the ‘MOST PEOPLE SCULPTING WITH MODELLING CLAY (MULTIPLE VENUES)’. There are 180 schools registered so far so there could be in excess of 5000 participants during our attempt next week.


Some of you have been asking for a recipe to make play dough - so here's one Year 6 wrote:


Playdough recipe


  • 150g (5oz) Plain Flour
  • 60g (2oz) Cup Salt
  • 3 tsp of vinegar or lemon      juice
  • 2 Tablespoons of Oil
  • 120ml of water
  • 2 tsp Food Coloring (and glitter if you      like!)
  1. Firstly, mix the dry ingredients in a saucepan.

2. Carefully, whisk in the water, a little at a time, over low heat

3. Slowly, mix in the vinegar

4. Gently, pour in the oil. Wait until the oil begins to heat through the mixture.

5. Continue to mix over low heat until it forms a playdough texture.

6. Split up the dough, and knead in the food colour or glitter.


Wait until the dough has cooled before you make a model!


Here are some models we made earlier!
