St. Patrick’s Day Play Dough Kit

St Patrick s Day Play Dough Kit | Mama Papa Bubba

It’s been a long while since we put together our last play dough kit, so this week I finally made time to create a new one!  And since I have a very hard time resisting anything rainbow, this time around we went with a St. Patrick’s Day play dough kit.

First off, I made several mini batches of play dough using our very favourite no-cook play dough recipe.  This time around I skipped the Kool-Aid / Frosting Creations Flavour Mix and used our beloved Sax liquid watercolours to create the 7 colours of the rainbow.  Though we almost always use Wilton gel colouring in our doughs, I have to say that I was very pleased with how vibrant the colours came out with the liquid watercolours – they truly are amazing!

Of course what would a St. Paddy’s Day play dough set be without some gold, right?  Though I desperately want the metallic set of liquid watercolours, I haven’t splurged on them just yet, so to create our shiny golden dough, I simply coloured it yellow first and then added a very generous amount of golden glitter. Done.

Afterwards I placed all eight doughs into our usual play dough kit container {the GLIS divided box from IKEA}, and added the shamrocks and metallic coins I’d found at the dollar store earlier in the week.

The kit was all ready for Miss G’s arrival home from Kindergarten until I stumbled upon some shamrock confetti that I had stashed away, so in that went too. ☺

After her usual hour of quiet, independent play time, Miss G couldn’t wait to get her hands on the new kit.  In fact, I believe her exact words were, ‘Is that a brand new play dough kit?!?  ‘Cause if it is, this is the best. day. ever!!’  {Hah!  I so enjoy her enthusiasm.}

And with that, she dove in.

First up came a rainbow on grass with a pot of gold nearby…

And then came a rainbow fort.

I’m not sure how or why Mator became part of her play, but he did and she was very pleased about it.  Something about rainbow junction if I remember correctly?

Of course I can’t resist a fresh batch of play dough any more than she can, so I jumped in on the rainbow fun too!
