DIY Play Dough Kits for Travel

I'm absolutely addicted to the DIY play dough kits that are popular among mom blogger right now.  I just drool every time I run across them.  Although I haven't made one of my own yet, but I'd love to assemble some for my own crew.  Play dough is not something most people think about bringing on vacation, but these DIY kits are great for grandma's house, hotels, camping, airplanes, appointments, restaurants, and more.  Since I love them so much, I decided to put together a roundup of my favorites for everyone to see.

Little Toys for Playing

Many of the play dough kits use the tiny toys from Safari Ltd. to establish the theme.  I rounded up some of my favorites for your convenience.  Click the colored text below the picture to see more information.  Also, I have Montessori-inspired 3-part cards for most of the Safari toobs on my other blog- Homeschooling My Kinetic Kids.

Divided Containers for Kits

Many of these play dough kits are inside of a divided container that you can only buy at Ikea.  I don't have access to the Swedish superstore, so I put together a list of different plastic containers that would work as well.  I'm not sure that once I start that I'll be able to stop, so many of these containers come in multiples.

Play Dough Ideas

Although most of these play dough kits are assembled with homemade play dough that extra step isn't necessary.  Here are a few store-bought play dough options as well as some awesome tools for modeling fun.  Click the colored text under the pictures to see more details.

What do you think?  Is this something you'd want to make up for your road trip?  Is it a horrible idea?  What theme is your favorite?  Have you made one for your children?  Tell me all about it in the comments.
