Homemade Playdough Monsters for Kids
Sep 122015
 

Sometimes, with my kids, I find that I have to get super creative to keep them interested and engaged in an activity. We probably do play dough around here several times a week (at least), but even with something as fun & engaging as play dough, the kids can get tired of doing the same thing in the same way. I’ve done Sand Play Dough, Marbled Play Dough, Glitter Play Dough, & Speckled Edible Playdough in the past. This time, however, I came up with a fun twist on playing with playdough… making fun play dough monsters!

This little project is sooo simple and will only take about 5 minutes. Plus, you probably have all the ingredients you need in your kitchen already! Here’s the super simple how-to!

It was a fun, easy project and the girls absolutely had a blast playing with their little play dough monsters! They loved taking the eyes out and putting them in different spots. They even created monsters with only one eye and monsters with three eyes!

It was a lot of fun playing with these monsters. Love easy kids’ crafts? Wait, there’s more to see! (Just click on the pics below to go right to that post!)
