I happen to be a part of a great group of bloggers, the Kid Blogger Network, which is celebrating spring in a big way.
Spring Playdough Crafts, Recipes and Ideas
We haven’t been doing a lot of playdough play lately, but I’ve been thinking about trying to reintroduce some. I love having seasonal themes to guide colors, flavors and additions for playtime.
Learning 4 Kids has a fun playdough recipe that includes floral scented shampoo and flower petals, perfect for when the weather gets a little warmer and there are flower petals around! This site also has an excellent idea for making a spring flower garden with the dough, an egg carton and some flowers.
NurtureStore has a bunch of great themed ideas for using different kinds of playdough, including one for spring chicks with yellow dough, making lambs with white and gray dough and using spring-colored dough with flower petals for an extra sensory element.
A Mom with a Lesson Plan uses spring playdough with flowers, bugs and butterflies to make a great invitation to play. Or try flower-shaped cookie cutters, green pipe cleaners and sparkly stuff to make spring flowers like Mess for Less.
The spring and Easter playdough mats from This Reading Mama are great for open-ended playdough play (and perfect for using at the table while you get supper ready).
And the printable playdough garden from Picklebums includes flowers and bugs for easy, fun play, just add green and black playdough.
