Playdough fun!

I have been pondering to try playdough with my toddler for a while but I was delaying as I was hoping to find a safe version (aka non-toxic). Recently, a wonderful friend dedicated us a post on her blog on How to make homemade playdough . We are lacking a couple of ingredients in order to make it but we have recently tried the playdough that was given miss T as a birthday present.

Few things I was reassured in again:

1. Always make sure the child and you wear clothes that you aren’t afraid to get dirty.

2. Cover the surface with a piece of plastic (if possible) – regular playdough stains and is not always easy to get off the surface even if it dried.

3. Start with one piece at a time – it eases your cleaning job.

4. Don’t leave kids under 4 unattended with playdough – even the non-toxic playdough consumed in big amounts (and in 99% of the time it WILL be consumed!) can cause some tummy problems.

Playdough is an amazing way for children to develop their motor skills (both gross and fine). It is a good way to help children with concentration and focus. It helps to have some extra tools like cookie forms to cut out shapes; may be a little plastic knife from your child’s kitchen set or from food delivery.

Enjoy the play time and thank you for reading my blog!

  1. Hi dear Varya! I’m glad Tessa is playing with playdough. I’m sorry you can’t find the tartar powder! I shall have to give you some the next time I see you. Lovely to see these photos of Tessa!
