Play Dough Imagination

We have not done many formal crafts in the last two weeks.  Things have been a bit busy around here with the new little Nancy around.  But, we have been coloring, painting, and today, doing play dough, too!  I had not been doing a lot of play dough with Clara in the last year because she has decided that she loves to eat it.  But, today she seems to have gotten over it.  Clara played with her play dough for about an hour and a half today.  It was bliss for me as I was able to sit there and space out.  I’ve been doing that a lot lately as sleep has been in short supply.  Anyway, first she made snowmen, cookies, doughnuts, ice cream cones, etc. and did not actually eat any of it.  She just pretended.  Then she pulled out a bunch of her Little People and made up all sorts of stories about them using the play dough.  The pictures below are of her people in a play dough car.

I usually make my own play dough, which is really easy and makes me feel better if it does go in Clara’s mouth, but Clara got some great play dough for Christmas which we haven’t really played much with and so I pulled that out today. Its awesome play dough, pretty much like homemade, but with brighter colors. If any one is interested, it’s called Mary’s Softdough and is made in Eugene!

Anyway, I’m thinking that we’re almost ready to make some cool play dough landscapes for her people or dinosaurs to live in like this animal scape or this mermaid lagoon or flower garden.  But that will have to wait until I’m getting more sleep.

    PLAY dough. Won’t be long before she wants REAL dough, as in allowance. Remember, you didn’t get one. Have you thought how you’re gonna handle that? Better to be prepared before she tells you how her peers are being treated.

      That is the most random comment on a blog post EVER! But, I’ll have to chat with Adam about it. I don’t think he got allowance either. We did earn money every once in a while for doing random extra chores, though, didn’t we? She also has a piggy bank where she can save her money that Moo and Pa give her…

    I am glad playdough is back!!!And it no longer looks appetizing! The flip up in the back of Clara’s ear is very cute, maybe start flipping it instead of curls, I kept trying curls!!!!
