Toddler Play Dough Play

I posted a while back on Infant Play Dough Play.  You can see that post here...

I thought I would update to show Y'all where we are at now.  :-)  

Play-doh is probably the number one used medium in our house.  All three of my girls really enjoy it and play with it on a daily basis.  

To make your own Play Dough please see this recipe here...

Here are some ideas for play.  My youngest is now 17 months.  

Homemade Dough
 We first talk about the texture, smell, temperature, etc.

We often use kool-aid or some other sort of extract to give the dough a yummy smell! 

The dough right after cooking is warm to the touch.  You can also throw it in the refrigerator for cool dough.  

Some of the tools that are in my youngest's play dough bucket. 

Toothpicks, beads, clay hammer, "pizza cutter", rolling pin, a few shapes, animals, etc. 

Using her cutters to make circles.

Play Dough Invitation
 The container on the left is pony beads and the container on the right is recycled bottle caps.  

To see a video on how this invitation plays out click here...

Increasing Vocabulary

We have a red turtle and a red penguin!  

My youngest loves nursery rhymes, singing etc.  

We often sing along to our dough creations.

"Twinkle Twinkle Litte Star"

"5 Little Ducks Went Swimming One Day"

 If you had a chance to check out the infant play... this has been a favorite of hers since she was 7 months old!  

Big, Bigger, Biggest
