It wouldn’t be school holidays if we didn’t have a couple of cold and rainy days, and boy have we seen some rain this weekend. As playing outside was not an option we decided to cosy up inside, get the fireplace working and enjoy some fun craft activities. Usually it is me doing the craft with the kids but this time we got daddy involved to help us build the Fun Dough Castle by Junior Tradesman.

With 3 sisters our son (4 years old) often has to settle for pink and girly so he was pretty chuffed with this (what he thinks is a) boys themed playdough set. The Fun Dough Castle kit ($29.95) contains a very generous 1.3kg of grey dough, a base plate, 2 windows and gate, spatula and the special ‘brick making tool’, it’s all kids need to create their very own castle.

Fun Dough CastleBy pushing playdough through the special tool you can make long bricks which you then cut to size with the spatula, such a great way to encourage building and construction skills in young children. On the back of the box you’ll find several examples of different castles you can build but of course the options are endless. When your castle is ready just get out your knights and horses and the fun can begin.

untitledThe building components and playdough can be used again and again so kids have will hours of fun with one box, a great gift idea. There are 4 different Junior Tradesman kits to choose from: Fun Dough House, Fun Dough Castle, First House and First House and Garage. The gorgeous Anastasia (daughter of Coccinella owner Renata) and her friend tried their hands at the Fun Dough House, I think it looks great!

Find them all in store at Coccinella, delivery is $8.95 Australia wide.
