As promised here is my contribution to the Busy Bag Party. We love homemade play dough and we love spring. So why not combine the two?
Spring Homemade Play Dough
I picked up all the ingredients I needed to make 4 batches of my favorite homemade play dough and some green food coloring. (I like the specialty food coloring sold in the cake decorating section.) Little M and I spent all morning mixing up the play dough. Once the play dough was cool I split it into 7 sections and bagged them up.
In December I added a few Christmas accessories and the kids had a blast with it. What better way to make spring play dough then to add a few spring time accessories? The dollar store sells bouquets of silk flowers.. for a dollar. So I picked up a few bouquets and cut the stems short. I found bags of insects in the party section of Target. (I included the recipe .)
These butterflies (sold by the bouquet with the silk flowers) were by far my favorite find. The little umbrellas are pretty fun too.
What a beautiful spring play dough garden.
