What better way to celebrate our continued loved of play dough than by making play dough love bugs!
I collected up some fun loose parts and accessories to make this love bug play dough set up for my play dough obsessed kids.
I was looking for items that could be used as legs, antennae, facial features, and just fun decorations.
For our love bug play dough set we used:
- Cut up drinking straws
- Mini craft sticks (so cute!)
- Pony beads
- Large googly eyes
You could also use plastic gems, pipe cleaners, toothpicks, natural materials, buttons, or any other interesting items you have on hand.
I also made some love bug play dough accessories. I made some heart antennae, heart shaped wings, and a few extra hearts just for fun and we printed and laminated them and added them to our love bug play dough.
We grabbed some brightly coloured play dough and had lots of fun making all kinds of funny love bugs!
