It's Daddy's birthday this week so we're all about wrapping presents and making birthday cakes. Little Chick loves helping out with the real thing but after we've been busy together she loves going off and recreating things in her own imaginative play. This is her Play dough Happy Birthday Cake.
So what do you need for a proper birthday cake?
Some 'cake mixture'
and some 'cake decorations'
Play Dough is such a fantastic thing to play with, there are just so many ideas, lots of creativity and skills development. Hands on: as we grow has a fabulous post with loads and loads of playdough ideas.
Lots of squishing and squeezing
Lots of careful placing of the birthday candles
Now time to decorate the cake
