Head on over to The Imagination Tree for loads of playdough recipes. I used Wilton’s icing gels to colour this batch, but you can use regular food colouring.
This morning, I put a plastic table-cloth down on the deck, and set the playdough up with an assortment of “tools”: scissors, craft sticks, beads, plastic toothpicks, coloured bowls etc., and told the Hooligans to feel free to mix the colours together as they played.
This is something I used to struggle with before making my own playdough. It’s expensive, so there was always a desire to keep the colours separate. When you make your own though, it costs almost nothing, and you can make a new batch whenever you want, so mixing the colours isn’t an issue.
Mix up a batch and make your little one’s day!
