Valentine playdough

Oh play dough, we love you. What would the 14th February be without some valentine playdough?

It’s got to be red, or possibly pink, and some glitter only makes it better. I was thinking about adding some scent – maybe some rosewater – but I asked L what she loved and my funny little girl said ‘satsumas’, so we got as close as we could and added some orange extract.

For some valentine fun we had a treasure hunt to see what red and pink items we could find to add in with the playdough. Silicone and paper cake cases, foil shapes and sequins, lollipop sticks and cookie cutters are a great springboard into some play.

    Nothing better than glitter and playdough! We made a batch at Christmas and it got played with and played with until it started looking really grey-red 😉 I think it is time for the bin!!!! But love homemade playdough so good for the kids!

    What a fab idea! 1-thanks for the recipes! Received refund, repurchased, & re-downloaded your book CORRECTLY, (& figured out the error which I’ll never repeat again!)! I’m just so delighted to have my own copy of the inspiring book! 2–just found plastic cupcake playset on sale dirt cheap, so I’ll be gifting that with this yo LO for Valentines Day! 3–I have learnt so much from your book already. I have created a shopping list for each activity you have there, plus some ideas of my own you’ve inspired! I am so EXCITED NOW to really WORK with my youngest (whom has some cognitive developmental delays) on some play/learning activities & games I have come up with over the last few weeks! I am really thankful for you and grateful for the bazillion activities you share here and all over the net! You truly are one of thee most amazing educating kids bloggers I have encountered in my last 3 year obsession with the internet, & finding assistance for teaching my LO after school on my own. You’ve given me confidence, resources, inspiration & ideas galore! I cannot thank you enough. Sincerely, Jeanine from Canada…
