Open Me! Advent Day December 2nd

 Nature playdough art! For this activity go outside and find anything you want then to make a wreath or an outside scene on a flat round of playdough!

How to make playdough:


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 3 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)  
  • green food coloring (optional)


  1. Put all ingredients into a bowl. Add boiling water.
  2. Knead until smooth.

Create a wreath with the playdough and insert nature elements as desired. Alternatively you may choose to create a nature scene on a piece of flat playdough. Check out our Pinterest board for ideas or share your own through our social  media channels!



  1. I love this. I also make some with cream of tartar no salt, never hardens and if it does add two drops of water and leave overnight
