How to Set Up Play Dough Monster Hands

Grab your green play dough. Here’s our favourite homemade no-cook play dough recipe. I absolutely Anna’s recipe. It’s her secret ingredient that makes all the difference!

Flatten out the play dough and have your little one make a hand print in the play dough. Push their hands down firmly so that it makes a deep impression in the play dough.

Then invite your little one to use all the loose parts to decorate and create a monster hand. We used fake spiders, colored google eyes, Halloween coloured sequins and ice gems. This is a great time to break out all your loose parts in Halloween colors.

All my kids enjoyed this very much. My five year old created a super spooky monster hand while my 20 month olds enjoyed playing with the loose parts and play dough and decorating their hand print.
