My daughter LOVES play dates. We have a lot of free play play dates, but sometimes it is fun to have a structured activity ready. I find that this is especially true for play dates with friends who we don’t know very well. This is an easy play date activity that kids love!
Easy Play Date Fun: Host a Play Dough Party!
Last Monday I sent out emails to several mom friends inviting them to an impromptu play dough party at our house on Saturday. A bunch of Emma’s friends showed up, and we made three different colors of play dough using this play dough recipe. We skipped the stovetop part, though, using boiling water instead followed by 30 seconds in the microwave.
The kids loved this play dough party play date! Emma got lots of inspiration of new things to make with play dough from her friends, and each friend got some play dough to take home as a party favor! It’s a simple play date activity idea that I know we will be using again.
