The Playdough pledge is a collaborative effort of Nurturestore, The Imagination Tree and Sun Hats and Wellie Boots. Its an invitation to trying something new with playdough in a week long playdate.
I have to admit I didn't think I'd "take the pledge". Goblin isn't particularly interested in playdough, preferring more granular substances for his sensory play - like rice and beans. But after seeing an entire week of awesome ideas from fab bloggers I couldn't resist trying something.
Goblin has a bit of a summer cold at the moment so I decided to make Cold Remedy playdough. I used Nurturestore's easy no bake playdough recipe which has become my go to recipe for playdough because it never fails. But my special ingredients was a metric tonne of eucalyptus oil. And some green food colouring - I figured since its job was to cure snot it was appropriate for it to look like snot.

Biscuit Bear every night for a week and listening to the CD in the car (Goblin likes repeating books that he enjoys). He made the link between the biscuit cutter and the book and started stamping out biscuit bears and lining them up. The great thing was that every time we rolled the playdough it released a lovely Eucalyptus smell which must have been great for Goblin's sinuses. We got to 38 biscuit bears before we ran out of playdough. Then he went and fetched the clove jar that I'd left on his table and started decoraing the bears with cloves. I joined in giving them eyes.
If you have any playdough related questions, or aren't able to get your playdough consistency right just leave a comment at one of the three participating blogs mentioned above and I guarantee they will have a great solution for you.
