Union Jack playdough

After the success of our Diamond Jubilee sensory box we were after some more Jubilee themed events this week. What could be more fun than Union Jack play dough...

Rolling the white sparkly dough (I used corn flour rather than normal flour to make it extra white after reading this post)

We made a rectangle out of blue sparkly dough and then added red and white crosses. I wanted the red to look more vivid but didn't have the time to spend ages mixing playdough as I knew we were on borrowed time as 'The Frog' would soon be awake from his nap.

Then we trimmed it to make it look tidy (possibly the only tidy thing in our house at the moment!)

After we had finished I asked 'The Fairy' requested to do some more cutting. I was a bit puzzled  (I wanted to play with the playdough still !) but went with the flow.

Searching the cupboard for items to cut I found some straws.

We also cut a crown.

 'Look mummy I've made a cake - it's got candles'

Every cake needs a picnic.

Happy Jubilee weekend to everyone in the UK (and Commonwealth) :-)
