Fireworks Play Dough

For the past couple of weeks our play dough option has been this simple but fun fireworks invitation. The girls love creating a “night sky” full of sparkly fireworks.

The girls like to make a lot of “exploding star fireworks” similar to these ones.  They also roll all of the black dough out and make a large “night sky” full of fireworks.

The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book

Want more great play dough ideas and inspiration? I can’t say enough about The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book written by Cathy James of NurtureStore. It has quickly become a handy reference guide for me regarding all things play dough. Even after owning it for a year we’re still finding new play ideas and recipes to try. The book contains:

  • all the recipes you need for the activities in the book including non-cook and cooked play dough, gluten-free dough, salt dough, modelling dough, and real bread.
  • ideas for 52 weeks of loose parts play, in a printable poster format
  • a whole year of play dough activities, arranged seasonally. There’s an idea for every week of the year including sensory and imaginary play, storytelling, art ideas, small worlds, math activities, reading and writing ideas.
