31 Days of Love

Welcome back to another ideas for the 31 Days of Love series, moving on from Valentine’s Cards we are looking Valentines Gifts either for your kids or that kids can make for loved ones. Today we have Melissa from The Eyes of a Boy sharing her fun Valentine’s Playdough! 

I am so excited to be a part of Red Ted Art’s 31 Days of Love! I’m Melissa, and I’m the mom of two little boys. I blog over at The Eyes of a Boy, where I share kids activities and crafts, product reviews and giveaways, recipes, and other fun family things

I am so excited to be a part of Red Ted Art’s 31 Days of Love! I’m Melissa, and I’m the mom of two little boys. I blog over at The Eyes of a Boy, where I share kids activities and crafts, product reviews and giveaways, recipes, and other fun family things.

At our house we love play dough (what kid doesn’t?!) and it also makes a cute, easy gift for a child, and can be customized for pretty much any occasion. I usually try to make our play dough in a safe, edible version incase my son tries to take a bite (which happens more than I’d like to admit!) 

Valentines playdough

To make this I first mixed up a batch of my Simple Neon Play Clay Dough, using neon pink food coloring. Then, I added in a red heart cookie cutter, and packaged it all up in an adorable red chevron striped gabled box (which I picked up in the $1 section at Target! Score!) I added a foam heart, and wrote the message “You are ‘dough’ special to me” on it, and attached it with some neat red-and-white bakers twine.

Valentines gifts for kids

Pretty easy to throw together this gift that your little one it sure to love!

I gave it to my older son to try out. He immediately loved it, and was super excited to play with the dough and stamp the cookie cutter into it! He played with it for quite some time, and I was even able to make lunch and eat it (imagine that?) Success! :)

Thanks for having me over to Red Ted Art to share, and I hope you enjoyed this easy, fun gift idea you can make for your child.

You can find Melissa on her blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
