Valentines Playdough Fun : Make it Mom Monday

Lets Make it Mom Monday with some fun Valentines themed play dough.

Play dough is always good for open-ended exploration and imagination-building. And,it’s great for hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skill development.

THE INGREDIENTS for Home made play doughs ~

  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1 1/4 c. salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. cream of tartar
  • 5 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2.5 cups flour
  • Food coloring or liquid watercolors. I really like Wilton Icing Colors or Liquid Watercolors (from Discount School Supply), which make gorgeous shades of play dough to match any occasion, mood, or toddler request.

For a Valentine Play Dough Station, I made a batch of white dough and a batch of dark pink, and then the kids helped me loosely mix them together to make this fun, mottled Valentine concoction. Oh, and we added peppermint oil to the mix to give it a nice, fresh smell. This would be perfect for other holiday's too…something to keep in mind for later.
