Plasticine at Easter

 (ad - Gifted)

Whether you are a grown up or a kid, you are sure to know what Plasticine is all about. I sure remember playing with it as a kid. 

So when we were challenged to get creative for Easter using Plasticine, we jumped at the chance. 

We were sent an amazing bundle of Plasticine goodies to get creative with. 


We were sent -

A pack of Fluorescent colours

A pack of Uber Tubes

A pack of Tower Blox

A pack of 24 colour mix 

and a Tool Box of Plasticine.

The 24 colour mix has a great variety of colours meaning there are endless things to make. The Fluro pack has 8 different super bright fluorescent colours meaning your creations can be even brighter. This set also comes with a plastic craft knife. 

The Toolbox is a super handy piece of kit. It comes with a rolling pin, and a variety of coloured plasticine. It also comes with some cute shape cutters to help make your creations with. It also comes with a plastic crafting knife. The best bit about the toolbox is that it is the perfect place to store your playdough and it can also be carried around with you using the handle of the box. It is a really sturdy box that locks really well, and I can see us getting a lot of use out of it. 

If you are looking for a bigger set of plasticine then you may want to consider the Tower Blox or Uber Tubes. 

We loved these sets for the amazing amount of plasticine you get in them. The uber tubes are 16 thick tubes of plasticine which the kids found were really good shapes to cut the amount of plasticine they wanted. The colours are perfect for most things you would want to make. 

The uber tubes set also comes with a playmat to do your cutting on, and cutters and tools. Such as knives and a rolling pin. With the cutters, my kids found the animal shapes the best and they found the best way to cut them was to use the shape cutter and then the knife to cut the shape out. 

The Tower Blox is also a great set. It comes with 10 tubs of playdough, which can all be stacked upon each other to make a tower. The variety of colours is great and has some classics like green, blue, pink. It also comes with a brilliant set of cutters, a rolling pin, a playmat and tools. The cutters are a range of animals and classic shapes like circles and squares. 



All these wonderful sets can be bought from Amazon. 

So, how did we get on with our Easter Challenge? 

The Kids did AMAZING and I was really impressed with what they managed to make. They made Easter Eggs, Bunnies, Chicks, and Spring flowers. 

They found all the tools really easy to use and also found they had the right colours for the things they wanted to make. 

They have put the things they made on display, knowing that Plasticine is so amazing that it actually doesn't dry out. Meaning that when Easter is over, they can reuse their plasticine. 

Check out below the things they made!
