I am just so excited that Spring is finally here! So are my kids. They love the warmer weather, longer daylight hours, and budding flowers. To capitalize on their excitement for a new season, I created a fun play dough activity for them by adding some accessories to Spring colored playdough. By adding items you already have at home to ordinary playdough, you can create a variety of playdough experiences for any season.
You will need:
- Spring colored playdough
- Spring cookie cutters (flowers and a butterfly)
- Green pipe cleaners
- Decorative items such as cut pipe cleaners, beads, glass stones, jewels, pom poms
- Small rolling pin
The great thing about these kinds of playdough activities is that you can use what you have at home to decorate the playdough. Don't buy anything special for this activity. I just happened to have these items on hand and am using them in a new way.
My kids started by rolling out the playdough.
Next, they used the Spring cookie cutters to cut out flowers.
Then it was time to decorate with some jewels.
Green pipe cleaners make great stems for flowers!
Pushing in some beads to make our flowers pretty.
My youngest was very proud of these two butterflies she made. She told me they were holding hands.
Finally, we put all our creations together to create a beautiful Spring garden.
