Camp Crafts · about 1 month ago
These delectable clay treats look good enough to eat and are a fun project for kids who love to make play food in their own play kitchens. You can make them with Play-Doh for momentary macarons or Model Magic for permanent pastries.
What You’ll Need:
1 container of white Play-Doh
Or a 4oz bag of White Model Magic clay, if you want permanent pretend macarons.
1 plastic bottle cap
1 small white takeaway box
A plastic spoon
Step 1: Divide the Play-Doh into four balls.
Step 2: Add a drop of food coloring to each Play-Doh ball.
Step 3: Mix the food coloring into the Play-Doh.
Step 4: Use a bottle cap as a mold and create macaron shells.
Gently flatten with the palm of your hand.
Step 5: Add texture with a spoon.
Use the spoon to carve a line around the edge of each macaron shell and to add texture.
Step 6: Make your macaron filling.
Make your macaron filling by rolling Play-Doh into small balls and flattening into discs.
Step 7: Assemble your macaron.
Assemble in this order: shell, filling, and shell. Gently press the finished macaron with the palm of your hand.
Step 8: Decorate your box.
Draw a macaron or other design on your box before assembling it.
Step 9: Enjoy!
Arrange your macarons in the box and surprise someone with a pretend treat!
Finally, an answer to the age-old question: "What would I look like if I were a dog?"
