Ooo, gifts. I really enjoy giving gifts…and am discovering how much my enjoyment grows when I get to package it nicely! Jolie got invited to another birthday party recently; her buddy Kai was born two weeks before her and his mom, Danny, and I really bonded through our pregnancies. For his birthday present, I put together a little kit for Kai to make his very own Play-Doh (with mommy, of course).
The kit included 3 air-tight jars, filled with the flour and salt needed for the dough, plus a coloring agent; each jar was tagged with a color. I found the homemade Play-Doh recipe by googling. (FYI: I’ve indexed all of the materials I used at the end of the post!)
The jars were padded with tissue paper and packaged in a craft box. A cute label was very needed and it was necessary to use the type stamps that had come in the day before (of course!). I love the way it turned out!
Any excuse for some bakers twine and a cute flag tag!
The finished product, which cost me less than $15:
From top to bottom, where I got all of the materials I used for this cute little kit:

Happy birthday, Kai! We love you! (And Danny, I fully expect to be invited for a Play-Doh date soon!)
