Right before Easter, in a last minute rush, I made some printable bunny cupcake toppers. A day or so later I spied those very same little bunnies hopping through a field of playdough on Nurture Store’s facebook page! What a cool way to use those bunnies!
Thanks to Cathy’s clever inspiration, a little light bulb went on in my head and I started to wonder, what else could we make and print as play dough accessories?
I asked my kids and had a look through some of my digital drawings and we decided our first set of playdough accessories would be a flower garden!
I got busy creating flowers and bugs and butterflies to print. The big kids helped cut them out and then we ran them through the laminater and cut them out again.
Then we made some playdough – grass green and dirt brown, of course! We used my favourite microwave playdough recipe, which meant we had cooked both batches of playdough in about ten minutes.
Then all there was left to do was make playdough gardens!
Of course we are sharing our printable playdough garden accessories with you all as well.
The pdf file contains two sheets to print – the first sheet has flowers, bugs and butterflies, the second has the separate parts of the flowers so you can create your own. You can download the printable playdough garden accessories here or click on the image above.
I’d love to see how your kids use these playdough accessories, feel free to share a photo on my facebook page!
What printable playdough accessories should be make next? My kids are talking monsters, but I am thinking about animals, or maybe more garden items?
