With a parent or guardian's approval, follow the simple recipe to make homemade play dough. 2. If you already have play dough you can use this. If you don't have any of the ingredients please make some pizzas, which you can cut up to explain and show me 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8. You might be lucky to have an actual pizza dough recipe that you could make or a pizza in the freezer you could ask a parent to cook for lunch. Then you could record with help how your pizza can be sliced up. Do not do any cooking or cutting without an adult!!
