(Classic Play) Play-doh Food


Roll up your sleeves and dive into some Play-doh this week with your kids! Show them how to make Play-doh peas, pizzas, and cinnamon rolls. Pretend with them that you are preparing for a picnic or that you are a gourmet chef at a restaurant cook at McDonald’s.

Play-dohWhen you participate in your child’s play, even just occasionally, they gain great ideas for new forms of creative play or new ways of pretending. This in turn gives them tools and new ideas for when they play on their own!

Left to their own devices, it is wondrous to see the creative play that children come up with. However, don’t underestimate the value of special playtime with mom or dad. Some of the greatest life lessons are learned through play.
