Homemade Gift or Party Favour – Play Dough Kit

I made up play dough kits for the kids during the last school holidays. While I was at it, I made a smaller version for one of my son’s school friends who was coming over for a play date. It was just a small thing for him to take home.  It was so simple to whip up, and I thought it would be a great idea for a birthday party favour too (or a simple home made gift). Make up a kit, stick on 1 lollipop and it’s a fun gift for the kids to take home from a birthday party (and it’s not full of too many lollies).

Construction Theme

This cost me less  than $4

  • Take away/plastic container
  • Play dough (brown) – store in a small zip lock bag
  • Rocks/pebbles
  • Small toy
  • Twigs
  • I inserted clip art/text into a Word document and printed a label
