R has been right into playdough for a while now. Each week, I change the tools and cookie cutters that R has. I have also printed out a few different playdough mats to add variety to his play. We make our own playdough, and keep using it until it either dries out or becomes sticky. I now leave it out for R to play with whenever he chooses to.
I have added the flat marbles to R's playdough equipment this week. He is loving it. As a bonus, his fine motor skills are getting a work out as well. He pushes the flat marbles into the playdough, then uses his pincer grip to pull them out again.
He has been playing with his dough almost every day, since the addition of these flat marbles.
