Fresh, Home Made Play Dough & Monster Making!
An afternoon of possibilities awaits a child with an open ended invitation to create whatever he or she wants including silly monsters!Pin It
I had a couple of hours of quiet in the house so I took the opportunity to A. read a good book, B. Take a long nap or C. make a double batch of green monster play dough! I set up my favorite party store serving tray with all sorts of goodies to explore and create with. Of course I added the trusty pan of play dough tools to keep the fun going!
What's on our serving tray today?1. Dollar store pumpkin decorating kits (parts to stick into pumpkins to make faces) 2. Eyeballs from our creepy crawly sensory bin 3. Spiders from our creepy crawly sensory bin 4. Pipe cleaner twists and colored gems 5. 2 pieces of small pvc tubing from creepy crawly sensory bin (late add-on) 6. Halloween themed cookie cutters I chose to make a double batch of play dough so we could make lots of monsters at once and the pieces to stick into the dough were on the bigger side too! I think I remember his words that went something like, Mommy there's an activity for me on the table! What is it? I wish I had taken more pictures, but I wanted to make silly monsters too! He immediately started with the witches hat and he had a plan. He worked on making the ball a little bit, singing a little song about folding it and smooshing it and rolling it around and then started to stick in pieces. Potato head pieces ought to work too! All sorts of crazy combinations can be made. I like his spiders and eyeballs. Mine is in the middle. We then got out the tools and cookie cutters and rolled and rolled and made tracks and balls and Halloween shapes. I love how play dough play can go in so many fun directions!
Here's my pumpkin man in his pumpkin glasses!
Such a cutie!
