My kids are loving our themed playdough kits so we decided to make another one. For this one we went with our imaginations (and some glitter!) to create a Sparkly Castle Playdough Kit perfect for all the little princes and princesses in the world.
WHAT YOU NEED FOR THE SPARKLY CASTLE PLAYDOUGH KIT
playdough (check out our homemade playdough recipe here– we added magenta and red liquid watercolors to make a beautiful rich magenta color and a pale pink and a generous amount of pink and silver glitter to make it sparkle.)
styrofoam cones or paper towel/toilet paper rolls
tray (we love these chip trays for playdough activities)
AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT
fine motor development
TIME TO PLAY WITH THE SPARKLY CASTLE PLAYDOUGH KIT
Introduce the activity by simply giving access to the materials. Seriously, it is that easy. There is no right or wrong way to play with the materials. While I am calling this a Sparkly Castle Playdough Kit it is important to note that if the children want to make something completely different please let them. Follow your children’s lead.
Luca began by taking small chunks of the two colors and pressing them onto the styrofoam cone.
Some goofy princesses were playing that day!
Lu remarked there wasn’t a lot of business at her shop that day. Oh well, still a super fun afternoon with playdough!
