I am fortunate to have some very talented preschool teachers as friends of mine. While visiting their classrooms recently I noticed an adorable valentine’s day themed play-doh activity center. The teachers had made chocolate play-doh and provided the children with candy boxes, cupcake wrappers and other chocolate/candy themed props. The children were then able to use their imaginations to create awesome chocolate play-doh treats!
I knew that this was an activity my daughter would love too, so with the impending snowstorm last Wednesday, I purchased all of the ingredients and we set out to make some chocolate play-doh!
Here is the recipe we followed:
2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
1 cup salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsps cream of tartar
2 tbsps vegetable oil
2 cups of boiling water
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl
Stir in the vegetable oil
Stir in the boiling water and mix until combined
Once cooled slightly, knead the dough on a clean surface until it loses all stickiness and becomes smooth and stretchy
Once the play-doh is made, its time to create! We used some birthday candles, cupcake wrappers and ice cream cones to add to the fun. This activity was a great way to get our imaginations working on a cold-snowy day!
