Make a play dough wacky sack

Make a play dough wacky sack

Big and little kids will love this play dough and balloon wacky sack. It's a fun idea for the car, holidays and any time you travel with kids. Put it in a toddler busy bag and take it with you.

What you need:

  • 1 x balloon
  • 1 x small blob of play dough
  • 2 x googly craft eyes
  • 1 x toupee fashioned out of wool
  • glue

Number of players:


Roll your play dough into a snake.

Stretch the balloon neck as wide as you can (this bit is easier with two pairs of hands) and stuff the snake into the balloon.

Mould it into a rough egg shape and try to get rid of any air bubbles.

Glue on some eyes. Glue on the toupee.

Now squish his face into different expressions. It's very therapeutic!  And a good way to occupy small children in the doctor's waiting room, on long car or plane trips or anywhere you need them to sit still for a minute!
