Play Dough Fun!
With Earth Day right around the corner (April 22nd), I’ve been trying to teach the kids a little bit about reusing and recycling our trash. Our recycling bin was overflowing with plastic water bottles, soda bottles, and juice containers. And we noticed that they all have unique shapes, ridges, and bottoms. What a perfect (and FREE!) tool for making impressions in play dough!
Play Dough Impressions with Plastic Bottles
We found many of the bottles gave us really cool flower like impressions when we pressed the bottom into the play dough.
And some of the sides even made really neat lines and circular shapes in the play dough. It was really fun to watch Priscilla discover the impressions that each bottle would make.
I liked the flower and star impressions so much that we might try to press them into something more permanent to make ornaments. Maybe salt dough? And when you’re done with the plastic bottles, don’t throw them away; try print painting with them next!
What’s the best tool you’ve found for play dough fun?
