What to Do

  • Making the St. Patrick’s Day Playdough

Begin by making a batch or two (we typically make one batch per child) of our one-pot playdough. This is our tried and true recipe that is super easy to make. After you’ve made your playdough, allow it to cool for a few minutes, and then carefully plop it onto a sheet of parchment paper.

Once your playdough has cooled enough to handle, simply make a bit of an indentation in your playdough, add some food coloring in the middle of your playdough, and fold your playdough over and over until the coloring has been incorporated. We typically wear disposable gloves while coloring playdough, just to keep our hands from coming out rainbow colored, but if you don’t have any on hand, you could always place the playdough (along with the food coloring that you’ve just added) on a piece of plastic wrap and use the plastic wrap as a sort of shield while you fold the food coloring into the playdough.

We set the playdough out as well as the playdough tools and accessories and invited the children to play.

They enjoyed making pipe cleaner rainbows, gold coins, and sprinkling shamrock confetti on the playdough.

Of course we also had to make some Shamrock playdough cookies. Yum! We might have to make the real thing next!
