Autumn Leaves Play Dough

The natural colours of Autumn leaves really lend themselves to play dough creations. there was a pin I saw on Pinterest with leaves made out of either play dough or cookie dough in Autumn colours. There wasn’t a post but  it looked great and I really wanted to do it.

We made three lots of play dough.

Brown – chocolate powder

Orange – orange food colouring and pumpkin spices.

Green – Green food colouring and peppermint.

We also had some leaf cookie cutters and number cutters and rolling pins.

First the twins just rolled and cut the play dough into leaf shapes. We got a bit of each colour to make the leaves,mixing them loosely together before rolling them flat. This made the lovely autumn colours.

After that we cut the play dough into numbers and matched the leaves for each one.

Then the fun part – squish them into a big tower.

Learn to count with play dough Autumn leaves. A great way to practice counting and have lots of fun.

 This idea makes great permanent decorations. I love these beautiful salt dough decorations from Twodaloo.
