Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired chocolate play dough

I’ve recently re-discovered the magic of Roald Dahl thanks to my 5 year old and his voracious appetite for reading. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was always one of my favourites.

Nobody has seen Willy Wonka – or inside his amazing chocolate factory – for years. When he announces plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets hidden inside the wrappers of chocolate bars to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets!

Everyone is familiar with Charlie Bucket, the Golden Tickets, the Oompa-Loompas and Mr Willy Wonka and what could be better than making our own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired chocolate play dough. chocolate play dough

  1. What a fun idea. I love picking up stories or movies and creating activities around them. Such a great way to pick up conversation on the film again.
