We have been baking up a storm for Valentine’s Day…well, pretend cooking that is!!! I may not be much of a real chef, but I can whip up some mean play dough treats!! My kids enjoy it, too!
I wanted to share with you all the fun chocolate play dough activities we’ve been crafting so you can also set up an amazing chocolate bake shop for your kids or students! The cool part is that these activities can be adapted for toddlers and preschoolers, but are intricate and artsy enough to appeal to much older kids, too! Adults, feel free to join in with the kids on these creations because they’re really fun…and somewhat addictive if I do say so myself!!
We started by making up a recipe for homemade Mexican Chocolate and Mexican Chocolate Coffee play dough.
I can vouch that this play dough has lasted four months since we made it so far and it is still the most moldable and best smelling play dough we’ve ever used!! If you want a good laugh, be sure to scroll to the end of the post to see what happened the first time my daughter used it. #epicfail But other than the potential you could end up with THAT on your hands — the accidental pun here made me giggle! — it really is the most awesome play dough ever!
Next, we made Play Dough Candy Pops for Valentines using heart molds and cake pop sticks:
And finally, we made Fancy Chocolate Cupcakes for Valentine’s Play:
