I saw some face blanks on Pinterest for use with play dough. Knowing that children are excessively self-centered, I thought they would have a much better time using their OWN faces for play dough play. So...I took their pics, took it down to their essence, printed them off and laminated them. Again, my camera leaves much to be desired, so the pics came out darker than I wanted, but it was too late to turn back, as they were swarming me like bees to get these done for them and wouldn't stand another photo booth session. So they got what they got for now. I need to make some more colors of play dough, but they really like the red. I can't believe this play dough was made the end of November and it's still perfect. I do LOVE this wonderfully scented, colored, textured and totally non-toxic [and according to G, great tasting] Kool-aid play dough recipe and so do the children.
The 10-year old thought it was a hoot, and an excellent excuse to procrastinate his homeschool work.
This is a great sensory experience. The children really had a lot of fun with it. It's great for fine motor skills, creativity, and a four-sensory experience if you use scented play dough [five for the littlest ones who eat it!] Another craft that received a rating of:
