I was putting out the recycling today when I found a Chocolate box insert. WHAT! How could I throw that away (Note to self - Normal people don't think like this). Anyway I whipped up a batch of playdough. I used the Nurturestore recipe as always but I added brown food colouring, two tablespoons of hot chocolate powder and some vanilla essence. It smelt AMAZING!
I laid it out on Goblin's table with some pony beads, sparkly sequins and gold glitter. No sooner had I laid it out than Goblin was there and playing (result!).
I showed Goblin how to fill the chocolate box hole with a pony bead and then push the playdough in so that when he popped it out it had the bead on the top. He spent some time creating decorated chocolates.
But one of the wonderful things about playdough is its open ended nature. Instead of just following the natural direction I had presented, Goblin decided to get out his cutters and make sparkly playdough feet. These looked beautiful and were even better for being his own creation.
And now to the linky
