There’s no doubt that we love play dough. In fact, we’ve given it out as gifts and favours several times before. But that being said, I can’t take any credit for these sweet, simple little Valentine’s Day treats…
Last year while still in Vancouver, my friend Tracy and her little guy Keagan brought homemade play dough in heart-shaped cookie cutters to our annual Valentine’s Day tea. As soon as I laid eyes on them, I knew that we’d be ‘borrowing’ the idea the following year (thanks, Tracy! ☺) I love their simplicity and the fact that they’re a non-edible treat makes them even better (hello, not having to worry about allergies and food restrictions!)
So today Gracen and I whipped up a batch of our berry-scented Jell-O play dough…
And packaged up some cute little Valentines to hand out to her friends! Simple as can be.
For all the details, including our berry-scented play dough recipe, pop on over to CBC Parents to see our simple scented play dough favours tutorial.
Side note: Kuwait friends, if you make this recipe using the generic local brand of jelly powder, be prepared to add quite a bit of extra flour. The play dough still turns out nicely, but we did add about 3/4 cup of extra flour. If you don’t want to bother with that, be sure to purchase the Jell-O brand stuff.
We’d love to have you!
