RECIPE Fake edible Chocolate soil
We generally make fake soil by taking some all-purpose flour and add few drops of edible colour or coffee powder and add few drops of oil. This time I tried making some chocolate fragrant soil play. I have mixed 5 parts cocoa, 1 part leftover mix grain flour with 1.5 part baby oil. It was such a pleasant play idea for my child and my room smelt chocolaty heaven. It a win-win for both of us.
