Chocolate Playdough for Valentines Day Imaginative Play
Make some Chocolate Playdough this Valentines day for some imaginative play creating your own Valentines Bakery for your friends with Friendship hands. This homemade playdough recipe takes under 4 mins to make and smells and looks like Chocolate.
I just couldn’t resist writing this post and all credit goes to The Imagination Tree for it. When I read about how easy it was to make I didn’t believe a word of it….
I’ve tried homemade playdough – I even wrote our recipe at the start of the blog but it is hard work and takes a long time to make by which point J is annoyed and T is starting to get fed up and my arm hurts. So when we’ve used playdough in the past it’s been shop brought stuff. But then Anna at The Imagination Tree kept posting about her no cook homemade dough and last week she posted a chocolate playdough recipe…. well I LOVE chocolate and when she said that it could be made in 4 minutes I didn’t believe her. So I set to prove that it took longer but it didn’t so here it is.
For the recipe pop over to The Imagination Tree to find out exactly how to make it – it took me 3 and a half minutes to make and has been very very popular with J.
Previous to this J has been very into adding things to his play, pens, pipe cleaners and of course googley eyes. But this time he wanted to make cookies with them. I had made some Valentines Cookies this week with him and I think he wanted to continue with the fun.
When I have tried to introduce cookie cutters in the past we have had to work together to get the co-ordination to cut out the dough but suddenly J has worked out the pressure needed and is able to cut out the shapes himself. Whilst we were cutting out the dough he kept talking about how we were making cookie out of the chocolate playdough and these were for Daddy, this one for T, this one for his favourite friend F etc…
