Halloween Playdough

I happen to be a room parent for all three of my younger childrens classes(thus the blogging break down) and so for the kindergarten class I had them make these cute little containers of play dough.
I made my favorite playdough recipe found here and made it orange and white and then added the play dough to some of my favorite containers (they come in a pack of 10 and the Dollar Tree).
After the containers were full we made them into either a pumpkin or a mummy depending onthe color so lets start with how to make the mummy.

Mummy Playdough

You Need:
white crepe paper
googly eyes
glue stick
permanent marker optional

To Make
Cut the crepe paper in half lenth wise. 
Use the glue stick and put glue all the way around the sided of the container.
Wrap container with crepe paper.
Glue on googly eyes and if wanted add mouth to make it a ghost.

Pumpkin Playdough

You need:
Orange paper cut into circles(I used the largest fiskar circle punch and they fit perfectly into the top)
googly eyes
green  and black crayons or markers

These were fun for the kids to make and they were able to play with the playdough too at the party which is great to keep kiddos busy while their classmates were finishing up!!!
