Play Dough and Organizing...
I had the opportunity to help Nicolette to organized her play dough activity. Yes, It was a lot of fun we are working on opening and closing without help. She still needs a little help but loves to play with play dough.
I have collected a bunch from B'day parties so I had tiny tubs with different colors and I received a small heart shape cookie cutter from a wedding party. we do play with play dough for hours so I decided to make a little bag out of cloth so when she is done with playing she can put those away all by herself nurturing independence. Actually she does a great job on this activity with some help.
She can roll them out and cut the shapes out I love to watch her play on this. So I decided to add a mat for this activity which involves rolling using her hands and making sure to to roll properly. the best part is she is engage with this for a long period of time. she takes the activity out lays it out unroll the mat and take objects out of the bag which involves following a sequence and that's exactly what I wanted to learn. I love our play dough activity.
