Celebrate Valentine’s Day with #PLAYDOH! Craft idea

My daughters school has strict policies on treats at school. So days like Valentine’s Day where one would normally send cookies, sweets or something else to eat, we can not. So we need to get creative. When Hasbro sent me out the bags of Play Doh in mini pots I knew what I wanted to do with them. 15 pots per bags, so two bags is more than enough for most classes. Each tub is 1 OZ and they have different coloured lids. Pink, white, red as well as circle stickers to place on them to write to and from. 

The Play-Doh Valentine’s Bags can be found at Superstore, Walmart and Toys R Us. These are for ages 2 and older.


Start a party of hearts and flowers with this huge bag of PLAY-DOH modeling compound! The Valentines Bag has 15 cans of pink, white and red PLAY-DOH modeling compound for little hands to make their own special PLAY-DOH valentines. Get the party started and watch their loving little imaginations come alive! Also perfect for handing out as Valentines Day treats!
Valentines Bag has 15 cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound! Make PLAY-DOH valentines with the pink, red and white colours! Great for classrooms and parties!

We had everything we needed to make flower pots for my daughter’s class. Construction paper, scissors, and a pencil along with the pots. 


We traced around the pots to cut out a circle that the pot could fit snug in. Cut out the circle then placed each pot in a different coloured flower. 



Here is the finished result. Costs the same as making treat and no worries of allergies (other than wheat) My daughter is excited to hand them out to her friends at their party next week!

What have you created with Play-Doh lately?
