    Ohhhhh I’m looking forward to this and am totally taking the playdough pledge!

    Today we made mint chocolate playdough, we’ll be making cupcakes with it later with sequins and candles – you inspired me for that! I have alphabet cookie cutters so we can have a play with them one day, and if I manage to make some suitably grainy playdough (any suggestions how to?) I feel a need to build little sandcastles using a little plastic shot glass I have lying around!

    • Cathy @ NurtureStore says

      Hi Jeni! Sounds like you are certainly rising to the Play Dough Pledge challenge! To make grainy play dough I would first make a batch of ordinary play dough and then mix in some actual sand. If you add it in the original recipe I think it will make the play dough too dry and crumbly but you should be OK mixing some in afterwards. What a great extra sensory element to add. We’d love to see some photos of your castles :)

    We’re taking the pledge! My Little Miss had her 4th birthday mermaid bash on Saturday so I think a sandy playdough with sea shells, ribbon, pails, sand dollars & starfish will be over the top fun on her actual birthday (tomorrow). Can’t wait (:

    We’ll be taking the challenge and trying out the Jello play dough that’s all over Pinterest! I’m excited to see how it feels and smells.

    We are taking the play dough challenge! This week we made homemade play dough for the first time (coconut and lime scented no less!) and we used some new (to us) tools with it as well. Can’t wait to share soon. :)

    I am so excited about this and can’t wait to try something new. I am either going to try the space play dough, mystery play dough or make play dough with children in my class.

    I am a family day care educator and along with all my children we take the playdough pledge

    We took the pledge and made play dough dung favors for our upcoming safari birthday party. I’m loving all the fun play dough ideas that have been posted this week.
