Storage idea

• Jar

• white spray paint

• black sharpie

• thick white paper

• pink crayon

• nail polish 1x pink, 1x white, 1x red.

• glue

To make jars like the ones above find an old jar or you can buy some from the warehouse for $1 and spray the lids white like I did. Cut two ears out of the white paper and color in with pink crayon, glue to the lid. Get your sharpie and draw a bunny face, you might need to go over it a couple of times. Get some nail polish and full in the nose and teeth. When nail polish is dry place your play dough inside and pop on the lid, now you have a cute bunny jar.


When children play with play dough it helps to improve fine motor skills which is beneficial to daily activities. Using play dough is a calming activity. Children work their stress out through their hands, so play dough is not only loads of fun, but can be another useful way to help your children to release stress.

Happy Easter!
