Visit the USS Miday website to see all of the fun activities and experiences going on this weekend. It’s been years since I have visited the museum and I’ll definitely be taking the P’s!
As a fun activity we decided to make some homemade playdough. Why the homemade kind with a few cookie cutters always holds their attention longer than the storebought sets I will never know, but the P’s loved this “Leprechaun” Playdough that sparkles!
We used this Playdough Recipe found on The Artful Parent. I must warn, though, that this makes a HUGE batch. We probably could’ve done with half the amount but most of Preston’s ended up on the floor so I was glad we had the extra
I made the whole batch Yellow and then while kneeding it I added the Green to half of it. Once it’s kneeded out and cooled off a bit, add in the glitter. We used silver and gold. Throw a few cookie cutters, cups, and utensils out to use with it and you have a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity for the kids!
