Dirt Play Dough

 I thought dirt play dough would be a great spring addition to my classroom.  Unfortunately the brown food coloring I had in my closet (from who knows when) made the most disgusting colored play dough.  After adding almost a cup of cocoa powder it looks like this:

Better... but it still reminds me a little of something that could be used for April Fool's Day

           Actually, the kids love the dirt play dough and both the boys and girls regularly make beautiful arrangements (that are filled with lots of little dollar store flowers and plastic bugs).  I used the colored egg dying containers for the pots.  I'll definitely do this again.


  1. lol! Too funny....but I love the idea!

  2. I had to laugh when you said that it looked like something you might use on April Fool's Day! I was thinking the same thing!!

    1. I almost didn't bring it in because I was worried that they might think it was gross or play with it inappropriately but they have not seemed to notice :)
