The Fascination that is Play-Doh
The freezing cold temps of winter make it challenging to be outdoors, especially for M. Looking for different indoor activities we could do at home, I randomly purchased some Play-Doh. I had no idea what her reaction would be. The main thought that crossed my mind was she’d try to eat it.
On a day where we peaked on every toy we had in the house, I decided it was Play-Doh time. I laid her mat on the table, set up the Play-Doh, put her in her chair, and waited to see what she’d do with it.
M was beyond fascinated. So fascinated that she played for over an hour, without needing any of my help.
She mainly reorganized all the Play-Doh containers. At one point she did bust out the rolling pin and tried to make some shapes.
I’m very happy with this for three reasons…
- It kept her entertained for over an hour (with light supervision).
- I was able to finish a load of laundry and clean & reorganize some kitchen drawers.
- She didn’t try to eat any of it 🙂 🙂
Success and happiness for all parties involved!
