One of the best things about homemade play dough is that it lasts forever! I recently brought out my blue glitter play dough that I used a few weeks ago. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, so I just grabbed a few fun things for J to stick into the dough. I wanted to use bendy straws, but I somehow misplaced them. While digging through my cabinets I found toothpicks and I thought they would be a good substitute.
So, I laid out the dough, toothpicks, jewels (that we use for almost everything), neon cups, and a spoon. I put it all on a cookie sheet to contain everything.
The toothpicks went in first, followed by the jewels. Talk about working on fine motor skills!
I wasn’t really sure what he was going to do with the cups, if anything. I thought he might put pieces of play dough in them, but he did this instead.
I’d say he had a great time with it!
