On Tuesday, I took Rabbit out to spend some of her pocket money that she had saved up. She chose two packs (eight pots altogether) of playdough. I love it when we have new playdough, because almost complete silence descends upon the dining room, and it lasts for a long time. This time Monkey, Rabbit and Tiddler decided to make cakes.
And then Monkey made a baby crocodile (because he was dressed up in a crocodile outfit at the time!) He made a background scene for it, which he mounted on a stand made of Lego bricks to make it stay upright.
It was a really fun afternoon and, as always with playdough, the children’s creativity was inspired in so many ways. When the novelty of the new shop-bought batch has worn off I think it will be time to make some ourselves. Good playdough recipes, anyone?
