Yesterday we tried out Play Doh for the first time. His auntie Holly brought him some Play Doh a couple of weeks ago, and we gave him a can of it in his Easter basket. Yesterday afternoon, it just seemed like the right time to give it a go, so we pulled out a glass cutting board surface, and I explained to him that the Play Doh only goes on that surface, and we opened up the can.
He didn't really get the concept right away, he just kept putting it in one container after another without really squishing it. But I formed it into letters for him to guess, and animal shapes to play with, and although he didn't go crazy with it, he did seem interested. Success was confirmed this morning – it was the first toy he went for after his bath!
My friend Charity tagged me on one of those meme's, and I'm always a sucker for them so, here we go. I'm supposed to "tag" a bunch of people, but I hate doing that, so join in if you'd like, and let me know if you do!
