Crayon Play Dough

M just recently started really loving play dough, and so I made this crayon play dough for him to add a little more fun to the mix! I used the leftovers from my crayon initial that I made for his room.

Play dough is a fun for kids to poke, prod, and mush, even before they really know how to make things. M loves “cutting” it with a knife, but most of all, he takes it apart and makes little pieces with his tiny fingers.

 

I added the little bits of crayon to give it a fun speckled color, but it went way beyond that. M had a lot of fun pulling out the pieces, or just fingering them. It gave it an extra texture which he really enjoyed.

I did leave out the cream of tartar from the play dough recipe, which made it not last as well. That, combined with the fact that I under-cooked it a little, made it leech a little, and become slimy. I had it stored in plastic bags, so the second time we played, I just let M mush it in the bags. HE LOVED IT. He was able to feel the crayons through the bag, and appreciated finding them.

Here’s a closer up view. My one regret is that I did not use contrasting colors instead of similar colors. The contrasting colors would have been so much brighter and more colorful.
