Making The Play-Doh Fun Go Further! | Repurposing Your Empty Play-Doh Pots

At Creation Station we use A LOT of Play-Doh!  We absolutely love that we have such an awesome partnership with Hasbro which enables us to bring super awesome Play-Doh fun to our parties, classes and events but with all our modelling fun also comes lots of empty pots!  Here are some of our favourite ways to reuse/repurpose your leftover Play-Doh pots:

1. Crafty Flower Pots

Decorate your Play-Doh pots with Sharpie pens and then use pipe cleaners and tissue paper to create some colourful flowers.

Beautiful flowers from recycled Play-Doh pots

2. Bird Feeders

Use the empty pots to create sweet little feeders for your feathered friends.

Recycled Play-Doh pots make awesome bird feeders!

3. Seed Growers

The perfect size for growing seedlings in each spring.

4.  Bubble Snakes

Clean the pots and drill a small hole in the bottom.  Place a piece of cloth or flannel over the open end of the pot and secure with an elastic band or piece of string.  Dip the cloth into a solution of baby bath and water and gently blow through the drilled hole to create an awesome bubble snake!

Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!

Fantastic classes!

Emma is so fantastic! The sessions are the highlight of my daughter’s week. She has produced some beautiful work, and is really proud of what she creates. Emma fosters a supportive, encouraging and fun environment for the children to worK in. I would thoroughly recommend her classes!
