Playmais miniature pumpkins

{ a rainy day activity}

We recently bought some playmais in preparation for less warm days and more days spent indoors with a slightly bored three and a half year old.

If you have playmais at home you can help your little one make some mini pumpkins for decoration or garlands for Halloween.

To make one pumpkin you’ll need three orange, three peach and one brown playmais pieces.

Squash each of the orange and peach coloured pieces on once side only. Wet on of the sides and stick together to make the pumpkin.  Roll the brown piece between your fingers until it becomes half size in length and width. Wet and stick on top of the pumpkin.

  8. Hi,

    I love these pumpkins :-)

    I am looking for a tutorial how to build a playmais cupcake :-)
