An invitation to play for your Bunny or Easter theme.

I’m going to start by telling you how to add a fun, unexpected texture to your playdough, then I will give you lots of ideas for a playdough tray.

If your kids can’t share supplies, don’t worry.  You can use the ideas below to create individual playdough kits for your kids.

How to Make Easter Playdough

To begin, I mixed up a batch of my quick playdough recipe.  I was in the mood for pink,  I added pink food coloring.

After preparing the batch of playdough, I added some Easter grass to create a unique texture in the dough.  I started by cutting the pink Easter grass into smaller pieces.  Let your kids help with the grass cutting.  I bet they will love it.

You can use things such as Easter grass for your playdough Easter activity.

After cutting up some grass, it was fun to knead the grass into the dough.

Add some of your cut Easter grass to your playdough activity station.

Here are some open-ended questions for your kids as they mix in the grass.

  • What happens when you mixed in the grass?
  • Did you notice any changes in the playdough when you added the grass?
  • How did it feel in the beginning?  What do you notice about how it feels now?
  • What happens when you pull the dough apart into two pieces?

Additional Materials for Your Playdough Tray

Now that you have your playdough ready to go, you can dig through your craft and supply closet to find fun items to add to a divided playdough tray.

Add fun items from your craft supplies to your bunny and Easter themed playdough activity.

Here is what I used in my tray:

  • googly eyes
  • silk flowers
  • wooden popsicle sticks and spoons
  • puffballs
  • chenille stems
  • Easter egg and flower vase fillers
  • number cards

Here are additional materials that you can add:

  • toothpicks
  • mini erasers
  • plastic bunny figures

Have fun with your Easter Bunny themed playdough activity station.
