Small Spaces.

We are in the middle of a beautiful new space for our creative frog but are waiting on something very special to arrive from Bellingen. So today I don't have a space ready to show you but I do have a great little activity that everybody loves....

The beauty of play dough is you can make it and play with it anytime of year, inside or out. I have been meaning to make my own dough for Audrey ever since I saw a pin on Pinterest that lead me here. But it wasnt until I stumbled across a beautiful post on Oscarlucinda that I got around to making some of my own. The post motivated me into action as it talked about childhood art education, the value of having quality materials and the luxury of time. There is nothing more rewarding then hand making something for your child. As I was kneading the dough for Audrey I was filled with a sense of achievement that I was providing her with an activity that was not only fun but educational.

Love, Elle

* I chose cacao, turmeric, blueberries and beetroot to colour the dough and lavender essential oil for a beautiful aroma
