we made play dough pie crusts…a new kind each day.
and wow, what to do when it’s too wet? add a dry ingredient! too dry? add a wet ingredient!
this corner of our room brought more constructive play than anything I’ve ever had going on. what a joy. (the mixer was actually used to make the play dough and then unplugged. after conversations about electrical appliance safety, what to do when you see a machine like this at home or somewhere else, etc, it was used for make believe.)– – – – – – – – – –
we made turkeys too…using paper painted the week before, the shapes were layered and glued in all sorts of ways. I wish I would have taken more photos!
