I have a small confession to make. My daughter is a child with a severe Play-Doh obsession. She rolls it out molds, uses all of the kits and tools she has on it. She even covers herself in it. Nope, you did not read that wrong. She will roll it flat and cover parts of her face or body with it. We have no idea why she does these things. If you ask her why she will tell you it’s because she LOVES Play-Doh and it’s fun. That’s all the answer we can ever wrangle out of the child.
So, why am I telling you about how much stranger one of my children is than I already have? Well, you see since she has this great love of Play-Doh, I decided she needed to share that love with her classmates for Valentine’s Day. She was over the moon excited about this whole idea. I set to work on designing the actual Valentine piece. I decided to go with a bag topper. That way I could also include a small cookie cutter for each of her friends with the Play-Doh.
The supplies are listed in the photo above. To assemble you will need to cut out the Play-Doh Valentine Printable, which can be found below. Fold the Valentine in half lengthwise and fill in the to and form field on the back. Place one can of Play-Doh and one cookie cutter into a baggie and seal. Take the folded Valentine and place the baggie in between both sides to just below the seal on the baggie. Staple each end lengthwise.
*Note on cost: Usually I can find plastic cookie cutters for my daughter at the dollar store with 5 or so in the package. I was not able to for these though and found these mini Wilton sets at JoAnn for $3.29/each. Pair that with the tons of coupons out there (they take competitor’s too) and these end up being cheap. The party size Play-Doh comes in bags of 15 or tubes of 10. I was able to get a bag for $5.99 at Target and a tube at Big Lots for $4.00. I also do not have a color printer so I emailed them to my local Office Max and they printed them out for me in color. for $.43 per page.
I think they came out really cute and my daughter is so excited for her class party now. Since we are no longer able to have food treats at parties in our school district this makes a nice alternative to the ton of themed pencils we usually end up with. Now here’s the free printable…
