Valentine Play Dough

5 Feb

I realized today that it has been a long time since I’ve made play dough… That means it’s been a long time since we have played with it either!  SO, I figured this is a great way to spend a snowy day indoors…  Of course we had to make “red” play dough because everything around our house is Valentiney!  My oldest moved the peg on the calendar from 4 to 14 today just because he’s excited about the big V-Day…  So here is our Valentine Play Dough… My thought for the day is that I could make a couple batches of play dough and we could divide it up for our friends and neighbors for a special gift… Maybe go to the dollar store and buy some heart shaped cookie cutters, put the play dough in a ziplock and attach the cookie cutter with a cute bow!  Just an idea… For now we will just play with ours, YEAH!

Valentine Play Dough Recipe:

2.5 cups flour
1 cup salt
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups boiling water
1  package strawberry kool-aid (just the 0.13oz package, not the mix with sugar)

    Someone in Haddon’s class did this for their valentines last year and even added glitter to the playdough. Haddon LOVED it!!

    Fun ideas!
