For a fun activity we thought we’d make some homemade playdough. Why the homemade kind with a few cookie cutters always holds their attention longer than the storebought sets I will never know, but the P’s loved this “Leprechaun” Playdough that sparkles!
We used this Playdough Recipe found on The Artful Parent. I must warn, though, that this makes a HUGE batch. We probably could do with half the amount but since most of Preston’s always ends up on the floor I’m happy to have the extra 🙂
I made the whole batch Yellow and then while kneeding it I added the Green to half of it. Once it’s kneeded out and cooled off a bit, add in the glitter. We used silver and gold. Throw a few cookie cutters, cups, and utensils out to use with it and you have a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity for the kids!
