Blast from the Past

Quite by accident, I stumbled upon what I have now deemed The Best Invention for Parents of Toddlers.  Are you ready...?  It's Play-Doh!

When I was in the drug store on Xmas Eve, picking up a few last minute stocking stuffers, I came upon a package of mini-Play-Doh canisters and thought, "I haven't seen these in years.  Why not?"

The result: my wildest dreams have come true.  Playing with Play-Doh keeps K. entertained for a good 30 minutes, if not more.  And those of you with little ones know that any activity that crosses the 15 minute threshold, let alone one half-hour, should be packaged and mass-marketed immediately.

While my brother was here over New Year's, the three of us had a big Play-Doh party.  It was a lot of fun.  At one point, K. had moved to the other side of the room to play with other toys, while my brother and I remained at the play table, rolling out our dough, braiding it, making various shapes, and squishing it to our hearts' content.  I remarked that it was like he and I had gone back in time about 30 years!

Here are some Play-Doh party pics for your enjoyment.  The shapes in the photos (if, shockingly, they are not easily identifiable) are a blue airplane (by Uncle C. for Kibi) and a slice of pizza (by moi).  Now go buy some for yourselves!

Love the pics of KiBi and Chip.

We made playdoh this afternoon for R's classroom... :)

Ok, just realized my comment sounded, "we MADE playdoh."

Let me assure I am not a playdoh expert...I BUY before I MAKE, I just had to make this time...

Ok, feel much better.
