For the first half hour you practiced making impressions in the play dough that I spread out on a cookie sheet. All we needed were some cookie cutters and a few other gadgets that we found in the kitchen.
After we finished stamping and making designs in the play dough, we decided to turn our cookie sheet into a mini beach. We found some tiny plastic cups, a few flags, and some shells for a decorative touch. I helped you fill the cups with the play dough and turn them over to create castles. You went to town sticking flags on top of them. It was so cute the way you kept taking them off and putting them on with the notion that "the more, the merrier!"
These two activities were so easy to put together! The play dough only took about 4 minutes to make and then I quickly made a dash through the kitchen rounding up gadgets for the impressions and sand castles. I'm so excited that this dough will keep for awhile! We may have to try a few more ways to play with it.
