Playing with Play-Doh is always fun. My kids love it and will play with it all day. I have been meaning to try out a homemade version of play dough, but it is still on the to make list. There are so many things in the store that you can buy to do everything you could imagine with Play-Doh from making pretend ice creams to molding vehicles. we decided to go old school and use what we had. I don't know about you, but I like to save on what I can rather than spending more on something we don't have to. This is what we came up with for the kids to have even more fun with a toy that has more than just one play option.
Plenty of options for fun there with the sand toys. When they are done with all of the sand toys they can head straight into the yard for some dirt, water or sand fun. Not much you can do after they mix the colors but they still have lots of fun. We added eyeballs and little hearts to ours. Actually, the kids pretended for the rest of the day that they were their pets and kept them in their clothes basket home. They were super upset to find out that they had to pick them up and put them back in the containers because they would dry out. They went to sleep and woke up the next day forgetting all about their pets from the night before.
