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

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.
