Each mat has an image and a suggestion which is designed to encourage creativity and imagination. There are no right or wrong ways to play with these playdough mats, so if your bunch of flowers is actually a bunch of monsters and if your chocolates are decorated with slime, that’s totally fine!
There is a heart to decorate, a bouquet that needs some flowers, some chocolates to decorate, and a love bug to decorate.

Will your love bug have spots or stripes?
