Chocolate Playdough Valentines

Here is one more cute Valentine idea we came up with. I love this idea because its NOT a treat, and you can make large quantities for pretty cheap with stuff you probably already have in your pantry.


Remember at Christmas time we made Holiday Scented Playdough as gifts?


Well what would be more perfect at Valentines than Chocolate Playdough?!

One of my MOST favorite blogs to find fun craft ideas for kids, The Imagination Tree, has a great Chocolate Playdough recipe. It takes less than 5 minutes and one batch made enough for 8 valentines. You can check out her link for the playdough recipe, it is super easy and the kids love to help make it.





Once the playdough had cooled I simply rolled baseball sized portions in a ball and put them in some cute cupcake liners I had on hand.

I whipped up this printable on Picnik, feel free to print it off if you want it! I like that is makes sure the kids know its NOT to eat...because this stuff smells seriously good! :)

And there you have another fun, unique idea for your kids Valentines!!

Thank you so much for coming by Blue Skies Ahead today! I have had a few people that are interested in doing blog swaps...if you would like to as well please email me! If I get enough interest I would love to start doing it weekly. It is a great way to find new blogs with more great ideas :)

Have a wonderful day!

My kids want a play dough that you CAN eat! My tween made some cherry flavored dough a couple of weeks ago and she wanted to taste it but I wouldn't let her...LOL! My mom made us peanut butter edible play dough when we were kids so I have to find that recipe for her!

LOL - I love this idea. We all get enough sugary treats so this is a perfect way to celebrate the day with something really cool that isn't sugar. And smells great too, lol. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.
