Play dough is such a big hit in this household. BB will spend hours playing with it. I made him and and YC a Valentine’s themed play dough invitation to play. Well now it is time to do an Easter themed play dough invitation to play.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make an Easter themed play dough you will need:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • 2 tbsp of cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp of oil
  • Food colouring or powdered paint

Add all the ingredients to a saucepan, and mix on a low heat. Keep stirring until it starts to come away from the side of the pan in one clump. Set it out onto a work surface, then kneed it until it becomes a dough. Please be careful as it will be extremely hot when you take it out.

Once it was ready I added it to a tray with some other items for them to play with. Some of the things I added were:

  • A rolling pin
  • Easter/spring related cookie cutters
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Gems
  • Flowers
  • Pom poms
  • Buttons

BB had a fantastic time playing with the play dough. He loves to bury things in the play dough at the moment. That and turning them into cakes so he can sing happy birthday!
