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.

Spring time growing with Play-Doh pots

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!
