Recipe & poem for Magic Play-doh
I came across a great first day gift on Mrs Killburn’s Kiddos. It’s called Magic Play-doh. It was such a cute idea that I just had to do it. Thanks Mrs. Killburn!
Start by making a basic batch of play-doh using my recipie. Just omit the food colouring as you want it to be white. Click here for the recipe
Attach the following poem to a freezer bag. Click here for link.
Poke a tiny hole in your play-doh ball, add some food colouring and carefully seal the hole to keep the colour a secret. I prefer to use colour gels rather than liquids as you get a better colour. You can purchase them in most Homeware Stores. I purchased mine in Joyces.
Place your white play-doh in the zip-lock bag and present on the first day of school.
Tell your child to keep the magic play-doh in the bag while he/she squishes and scrunches it.
Look what happened to my magic play-doh ! Magic! It turned purple
I can’t wait to see the reaction of my class on Wednesday morning!!! I hope that your child/class enjoys this too. It’s such a positive and affirming way to start the year.
