Travis was a little aimless this morning – time to pull out the playdough! I love using the all-natural Eco-Dough from Eco-Kids, which comes in a pack of 5 great colors, all dyed with natural pigments like annatto seed and curcumin (turmeric).
To make today’s play a little different, I pulled out a bunch of old kitchen tools to see what fun textures we could make in our dough.
A potato masher was mildly interesting….
A mallet was fun, with Travis pretending he was making waffles…
But the biggest hit was an old garlic press:
And of course, you can’t go wrong by adding texture to your playdough with the easiest tool of all: fingers. Travis filled this whole disc of playdough with little holes and told me he’d made the Daniel Tiger crayon machine.
Hey, not bad!
