Chocolate and Mint Playdough


We’ve been out in the garden and I wanted to bring some of the great smells inside, so we made chocolate playdough and added fresh mint!! The kids loved it, well the chocolate part!!

They made cakes and cookies, but best part was them talking about what they smelt-

“Ummmm- chocolate, yum yum! I love chocolate! My mummy loves chocolate too!”

“Yuck- MINT! This smells yucky!”
Make playdough at home - it's crazy easy!
