Play Dough, Spring

Spring Gardening Play Dough Invitation

This play dough invitation is great for your 3+ kiddos. Loose parts can be modified to make appropriate for 1.5+.


  • Loose parts (pom poms, fake flowers, colored sticks, bits of yarn, pipe cleaners, fake leaves, mini gardening pots)
  • Play dough (use our favorite recipe here)
  • Divided tray for loose parts


Set it all up as an invitation to play. I usually leave a play dough invitation out for a week with an air tight container for little hands to put playdough away between play sessions.

For this play dough invitation I added ground coffee to one play dough ball, cocoa to the second and cinnamon to the third for color and scent.

Have fun!
