Here is the link for 2 recipes for chocolate playdough- Link 1 & Link 2 they are about the same. What I did was add 1 cup dried out coffee grounds that we had played in and some GLITTER for fun. I also thought the glitter would help us remember "we don't eat it." After making the playdough I now needed to set up a play theme for my son(3yr). That is where Dino Land came from!! I found little dinosaurs, wooden sticks, and a few sunflower seeds. I took the playdough and flattened it out in a tray and then added the items. After seeing how it would look for him I took the items off and covered the tray with press and seal. ( I made the playdough the night before so my son would be ready to go in the morning) The next morning I managed to get the toy items back in the playdough before he noticed it. Then I called him to see if he wanted to play. He was super excited about it and sat down quickly to get started.
Here is our day and how you can make your own Dino Land too.
Now that it is set up we need Liam to come play.
He was stunned and then...
Off to playing. He liked the smell too.
Little brother was a little sleepy but I gave him some fun stuff too. However, it did not compare to what he saw big bro had out.
What he ended up with at the end of play time. I just covered it that day with press and seal but that night we put it in a Tupperware bowl to keep it. I chose the chocolate play and not just the coffee playdough to make because I know the recipe for the chocolate one keeps well. We have peppermint glitter playdough from Christmas in a ziploc bag that can still be played with. Here is a link to the Nurture Store of a list of playdough recipes from A-Z if you would like to look for a new playdough recipe to try. Hope you and your family may have some Dino Land fun too.
Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back.
All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
