One activity that we do almost every day is play dough. We were playing with Kool-Aid Play Dough the other day and I came up with this simple, cute valentines craft. First, I took the play dough and rolled it out with a rolling pin.
Next, we took a cookie cutter and cut out a few shapes.
Next, I baked the play dough. Did you know you can actually bake play dough? I had to google it, but yes it totally works. And I’m probably the only one who didn’t know you can actually bake play dough!!
I put the play dough in the oven at 200 degrees on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes. I checked on them every 5-10 minutes and took them out after it started to look and feel dry. I also used silicone hearts to bake some heart shaped play dough. Those were left in longer than the ones on the baking sheet.
Next, I laid them on a cookie sheet and let them dry completely. I love the sparkly red play dough!! It’s actually the play dough we made for Christmas.
Lastly, I added a magnet to the back and added them on our fridge. You could use these as paperweights or just decorations, too. If you poke a hole before putting in the oven, you could string ribbon through it and hang somewhere for decorations.
