Play-doh is a fabulous medium for encouraging creativity in children! Because it is so easily shaped, a child can create wonderful art and sculptures, including food art, with Play-doh. The Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Magical Oven Set combines creativity, imagination and fun imitation all in one set.
Children love to imitate their parents. When they see moms and dads preparing food, they want to “play” with food and ingredients too. We often see children prepare a “dish” to serve their teddy bears and favorite plush friends. Children learn to set the table and serve food without even realizing they are learning and perfecting a task they will use all of their lives.
Play-doh is not edible, but it is fun to shape into beautiful foods like cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies and truly any baked item. Encourage kids to embrace and develop their artistic talent with play-doh. Add the ingredient of creating pretty imitation food for their own play kitchens. Not everything has to be pre-made or store bought to be fabulous. As a matter of fact, kids, like adults, often value what they have made with their own hands more than they do store-bought things.

Parents: Preserve Play-doh Food Art
One of the saddest events in a child’s life can be when an artistic creation is destroyed. We all know what that feels like! The very thing that makes Play-doh popular, is also the thing that makes it so easily destroyed. It molds and reshapes easily. Just touching or applying enough pressure to pick up and move a finished Play-doh creation is all to often all it takes to mess up your work of art. Therefore, when they are finished creating their beautiful food, why not help the by preserving the Play-doh art.
ONLY PARENTS SHOULD APPLY MOD PODGE
Mod Podge Decoupage Starter Kit Bundle with 6 Items — Gloss and Matte Medium with 4 Foam Brushes
- Allow the Play-doh art to air dry for several days (up to a week depending on climate)
- Apply a thin coating of Mod Podge and allow 3 days to dry
- Apply a second coating of Mod Podge and allow an additional 3 days to dry
- When the 2 layers of Mod Podge are completely dry, then apply Mod Podge to the bottom of the piece and allow to dry for several days (set art piece upside down – Mod Podge will act as a glue if you try to set it on a surface before it is dry)
After the food art is completely dry, a child can either display their beautiful work, or they could actually use it in their own play kitchen. They will love that!
