My Big Boy is playdough crazy at the moment. We have lots and lots of playdough accessories, but his sisters wanted to get him ‘something special’ for his birthday, something different to all the playdough things we already have. Instead of buying more commercial accessories the girls decided to make him some!
They knew his love for all things green and so, with a little help, they whipped up a BIG batch of bright green playdough, using our favourite cook in the microwave playdough recipe.
Then they snuck off to their room to collect some accessories. Working with a ‘Jungle’ theme they found stones, gum nuts and a selection of Jungle animals (and I know technically lots of those animals don’t live in the jungle but it was the best we could do!). I supplied a few plastic leaves and a container to put it all in and we wrapped it up ready for the birthday boy.
Morgan LOVED his playdough gift and spent most of the morning making food and houses for the animals. We even made animal tracks in the play dough and compared foot prints!
Such an inexpensive, easy gift and something a little different to do with play dough.
