One of my favorite things about being a mom has been introducing my kids to all the awesome things this world has to offer. Things like riding shopping carts through the parking lot, freshly baked bread, or playing, “Duck, Duck, Goose!” It’s one of the best feelings to see your kids loving the same things you loved at their age.

When Play-Doh recently asked if I’d participate in National Play-Doh Day 2014, I jumped at the chance because we LOVE Play-Doh! Thanks for sending us a new set to try out!

Like most of you, I grew up loving to play with Play-Doh. The vibrant colors, the smooth way it rolled into “snakes,” and its most recognizable feature: the smell! I remember how fun the playsets were- squishing yellow doh out into spaghetti noodles, rolling tiny meatballs between my palms, and arranging it all on a plate I rolled out with the mini rolling pin :)

Our favorite way to play with Play-Doh is completely unstructured free play. There are lots of great ways to use Play-Doh as a teaching tool but there’s just something about sitting down with a few jars and letting your imagination take care of the rest.
