I would have liked to get out into the garden today… but it has been rainy and cold here, and the veggie garden is a muddy mess.
So we made play dough gardens instead, and I made some fun gardening and growing play dough mats.
With a few lumps of play dough and some accessories we were soon busy in our play dough garden.
First we planted a few things in pots…
Did you know you can grow play dough carrots in a pot?
Then we planted a few things in a garden bed…
There was even a worm wriggling around under the soil!
And last of all we made some gorgeous leaves sprout on a big tree…
There are sequin blossoms on our tree too, just like the trees in our orchard right now.
You can make your own play dough garden, just print out the play dough mats and laminate them or cover them in self adhesive paper.
They also work great with dry erase markers or crayons, or print them in black and white on plain paper and use them as drawing prompts.
What will you grow in your play dough garden?
