Packaging play dough

I packaged half of the homemade pumpkin pie play dough in the leftover pie tin (click link for detailed instructions). I was out of plastic wrap, so I used the cellophane from a cracker box instead. I think we'll deliver it to the family next door.

Yea! Such a fun and lovely gift. I love your creative packaging - esp. the plastic wrap.

You know, one year I ran out of tape while I was wrapping presents (I think I only had one or two to go) and I just melted and used candle wax. It got the job done! :)

I have been in early childhood education for 23 years and have never seen homemade playdoh packaged so clever before, really cool!

What a great gift! Just one question, did you have any problems with them trying to eat it? I think even I would be tempted with the pumpkin pie spice smell.

I am doing this one with the class next year. I posted our kiddie cornucopia take off today.

My 9 year old daughter and I made this today and sent it over to her cousins. We put it in a foil pie tin and even cut out a maple leaf with a cookie cutter to decorate the top. I thought it looked sweet.


By the way, I halved the recipe (short on salt) and it turned out just fine.

Thanks for all your lovely posts and ideas,

Sounds wonderful. My children always loved scented playdough. Your neighbour's children will be very lucky.

We recently made a really simular recipe, but instead of cooking it I just used boiling water and it wasn't lumpy at all! I was quick and easy and the kids and I had so much fun with it! We were using it for our history class and tried to make the pryamids of Egypt - too funny!

I enjoy reading your blog, and your pictures are quite inspiring!
Blessings!

This is cute! Last year for Valentines DS and I made playdough, colored/scented with red kool aid, rolled it thick, cut out heart shapes, bagged it and tagged it and voila. Homemade valentines for his classmates.
