Day 32: Playdoh Faces and Hedgehogs

By Sjay235 @naturalmommainm
Day 32: Playdoh faces and hedgehogsI may have mentioned once (or twice...) that Isabelle is a huge fan of playdoh after being introduced to it during our day 12 stretchy playdoh activity. She has since asked for "doh" almost every day, so last week I made her some really easy, and wonderful, no cook playdoh.
Of course we play with it as normal playdoh, but earlier this week I wanted to add an extra element to our play and so decided to bring in one of Isabelle's other favorite play materials - buttons.
Since then we have played more than once with the buttons and playdoh, eventually settling on using them to make playdoh faces and playdoh hedgehogs (or "hotdogs" if you are Isabelle!). Isabelle loves pushing the buttons into the dough, and it is a really great work out for her fine motor skills pushing them in and pulling them out, and is helping teach her about appropriate force.
The playdoh is super soft and silky, and so Isabelle is learning about how to push the buttons in carefully to get them to stand on end - which she much prefers to laying them flat onto the dough.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I've been a bit unwell this week which means I haven't had a pile of energy unfortunately, but this is the perfect little activity to keep Isabelle and I busy...with minimum input on my part (that sounds awful!) and maximum enjoyment for her.
(As a side note, after a week of almost constant play the playdoh I made is still as soft and pliable as when it was first made!)
