Yesterday, Junebug and I tried out a new recipe for play dough. We didn’t really have time to play after we made it, so today we got it out, dug our hands in and tried it out.
(Those baby blues! They just make my heart melt!)
Overall, I’ll say I was pleased with the recipe and how it turned out. It was a bit crumbly for my liking and didn’t stick together very well (for example- rolling out the play dough and then trying to flip it over was virtually impossible) BUT Junebug was in heaven, so I call this a win.
(She gets so focused when she plays!)
She enjoyed squishing, poking, rolling and patting this stuff! We brought out our bumpy rollers that I found at a rummage sale last summer and the letter and number cookie cutters that I scooped up at Goodwill last week for $4.99 (50 cutters total, and they were all there!) She was doing quite well identifying her colors “Piiiink” and “Purpur” and was being pretty creative telling me which letter and number cookie cutters she was using. Most of them were “R” and “Shree”.
Junebug was busy for a good 45 minutes to an hour playing, and was quite sad when I gave her the clean up warning. She is doing really well with clean up lately, we’ve even caught her cleaning up without us asking her to! How awesome! She helped me clean up all the chunks of dough, the cutters and the rolling pins. I told her we could maybe play with more play dough after she wakes up from nap, so we’ll see if she remembers, or if she wants to move onto another one of her art mediums. This girl loves her art!
On a side note: this table is amazing! Joseph made it from a Pinterest tutorial and it’s the perfect size for all of Junebug’s little art projects! He just has to make some chairs to go with it now! The tutorial includes instructions on how to make the table and chairs!
