Children of all ages love playdough and would like to play with it at home with their parents, but often their parents dont have the time or the ingredients to make playdough.
This welcome back to school gift takes the hard work out of making playdough for parents!
The gift includes all the dry ingredients needed to make the playdough in a zip lock bag, attached with the recipe to finish the playdough and ideas for using the playdough. Download the printable templates to make the back to back card instructions.
- Glue the 'Playful Playdough'template (which has instructions to finish making the playdough and a note explaining the benefits of playing with playdough) and the 'Feeling Playful' template (which has a basic playdough recipe and ideas for using the playdough) back to back on a piece of card. Laminate the piece of card for durability.
- Attach this to a zilpoc bag which already has the dry ingredients for the playdough inside. (Use our basic playdough recipe for the ingredients, we also dyed the salt using food colouring and allowed to try before adding to the bag).
All the parents have to do is add the wet ingredients and make!
Hand this out on the first day of school or during parent orientation, explaining the benefits of playing with playdough at home.
