I'm very aware that my last two playdough posts have featured brown dough (remember the chocolate playdough cupcakes we made?) I'm also well aware that brown playdough does not look particularly... appetising (for want of a better word). But you guys, this dough is pretty awesome.
Riding high on my playtime success with the (too cutesy named) Baby Barista Sensory Tub I decided we should use coffee more in our playtime - because
I freaking love the smell of coffee the kids seem to get a kick out of the caffeine sensory elements it adds to their playtime.
I'll be honest here, I'm not into wasting good coffee, but I am into hoarding the stuff. I currently have four varieties in my kitchen, and I am the only one who drinks it. So of course a big bag of ground coffee never gets used in time - therefore until they start selling smaller single-person sized bags I am completely allowed to use up the remaining in frivolous playtime for my kid right?
This is no-cook dough, but I think it would have worked better with a cooked dough as the coffee did dry it out a little. I'm pretty sure it would work with hot black coffee instead of boiling water in a no-cook recipe, try it, tell me if it did.
There is at least one more coffee play post in the near future (including what to do when your toddler wants to play with the thing you are photographing at the very moment you are photographing it)
