Happy National Play-Doh Day!
If preschool had its own perfume, it might just be the smell of a freshly opened can of Play-Doh.
And my kids and I agree: Play-Doh is fun on its own, but it’s even cooler when you add in an accessory or play set.
This time five year-old Grace and I let loose with the Play-Doh Twirl ‘N Top Pizza Shop. It was the joy of cooking, without the mess.
We cooked dough in the oven, grated some cheese, and made lots of toppings. Ironically she liked the anchovy and broccoli molds the best, even though fish and veggies are not a big hit in our house.
Ooopss! There goes a slice of “pepperoni” into the baby’s mouth. I got it out right away, but thank goodness this stuff is non-toxic.
Before long we moved past pizzas to make cookies, cheese sticks and sliced everything into bits with the super cool pizza cutter.
Now what to really make for dinner? I wonder if it will smell as good as this Play-Doh.
PS. Some Play Doh bits inevitably wind up on the floor. Resist the urge to clean them up right away. It’s much easier to run a hand vacuum over the little pieces a few hours later when the dough has a chance to dry out.
