What a great birthday party theme ‘dinosaurs’ is! Earlier this week Mila went to a friends 4th birthday where we had a fun time celebrating dinosaur style.
I decided to get a little creative and make his present so off to the Warehouse Mila and I went on the hunt for dinosaurs. We found these cute little ones in a packet for $3 and then the compartment sistema container for $8…winning!
Next Mila and I went on a nature hunt to collect all the stones, sticks and natural materials that we thought would be perfect for adding to a dinosaur world.
We then made 4 colours of playdough which fit nicely under the compartment that was in the top of the container. I will write my never fail cooked playdough recipe at the bottom of this post. What we included in the container was probably a third of each colour so it is a decent amount per batch.
When we were finished Mila was itching to play with this present but reluctantly agreed to help me wrap it up. I must admit it did look like a very cool invitation to play and create so I don’t blame her for not really wanting to give it away! I hope our wee friend enjoys making his own dinosaur world, we certainly had fun putting it all together.
Quick and Easy Never Fail Cooked Playdough Recipe
- 1 TBsp vegetable oil
- 1 cup of water
- 1/4 cup salt
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- food colouring
- 1 cup flour
Add the first 5 ingredients into a pot and stir to combine. Then add the flour and mix it in well. Place the pot on the stove top and heat over a low temperature, stirring to prevent it catching on the bottom until it forms a dough consistency. Allow to cool slightly then knead it until it is smooth.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
