This Chocolate Play Dough really looks and smells just like the real thing! YUM!!
The chocolate aroma has filled our house this week as we have played with the chocolate play dough every day so far, we even had this play opportunity set up for Miss 4’s play date with her kindy friend.
As we plan to make homemade chocolate Easter eggs for gifts using our Easter chocolate moulds, I thought I would link this in with a bit of role play and using our chocolate play dough.
My girls and their kindy friend found this a lot of fun as they made their very own chocolate Easter eggs using the moulds and chocolate play dough.

Miss 4 making a large chocolate Easter egg by pressing the play dough around the edges of the mould. When the play dough chocolate egg was pushed out of the mould, it even had the patterns of a really Easter egg.
Finding other ways of using the chocolate moulds with the play dough – a stamp! Gently pressing and pushing the mould into the chocolate play dough to reveal egg shapes and other patterns.
