Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site Play Dough Kit

Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site Play Dough Kit | Mama Papa Bubba

After his dad’s Facebook post about the number of times the word ‘and’ shows up in the book Where the Wild Things Are, I knew that we had to get today’s birthday boy a new book {something with more than 8 sentences, preferably – that nifty fact also learned through a FB post about  the dreaded/beloved Where the Wild Things Are ☺}.

I must admit, I was quite impressed when we found a copy of the New York Times Bestseller, Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. Good books aren’t always easy to find here in Kuwait, so when you come across something decent, it sometimes feel like you’ve won the lottery {I wish I were joking}.

After picking up a copy of the book, we decided to create a Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site play dough kit to include with our gift, so we popped by Toys R Us and purchased a set of construction vehicles.

Then we rounded up a couple of wooden blocks, some rocks, and some mini faux trees before making a batch of our sand play dough and two batches of our usual no-cook play dough, one brown and one black.

We also really wanted to include some miniature traffic cones {like these}, but had no luck finding them sadly.

In the end, our kit looked like this, which Miss G was quite please with.

As we usually do, we skipped the wrapping paper, tied everything up with some baker’s twine and a little tag, and called it good!

  1. Love all your play dough kits, but this is probably my favorite! We also love this book and I made a construction site birthday cake for my son, which he loved. So glad you have given us another fun idea for the vehicles!

  2. What a fun idea. This is my 2.5 yo’s favorite book.mwe are in Saudi and have the same limited choices and often need to make gifts to improvise. Thanks for sharing :-)

  3. Hello, beautiful post. What ingredient do you use in the play dough to make these 3 colors? Thank you.
