When offered the opportunity to review a fun play-doh play-dates activity website, I was thrilled. After all, my kids already love play-doh and come up with some pretty amazing things without even being prompted. Birthday cakes and tea parties are just the beginnings and thanks to their activity website (which I did not know about before this opportunity), we got even more great ideas on how to interact them and stimulate their already creative imaginations. The website is very easy to use & navigate and there are themes for play-doh creations. We focused in on the Fresh Ideas button since it had a cupcake displayed and my kids love desserts. From there, they chose their theme for our play session to be sweets and sure enough, the sky was the limit. They made ice cream, cupcakes, candies, and cookies. We had a blast as you can see from a few of our pictures posted here, my older daughter made the best little pastry and dessert shop on the block!
No matter what theme your kids choose to model after, the play-doh ideas are fun and give you step-by-step instructions without pictures and graphics so you can’t go wrong. But there is more to this website if you do not have play-doh on hand (come on who doesn’t have play-doh on hand?). Anyway, you can do crafts like make placements which all have activities for the kids, or build a perfect snack together (a real snack, not play-doh) – healthy and fun because your child is involved with you. Crafts are fun too because they follow the theme for what you can make play-doh items for so, for example, September’s theme is Pizza Shop, so you and your kids can enjoy a PLAY-DOH pizza party! There is the option to make pizzas, calzones, and gelato out of play-doh but then you can make crafts like pizza boxes, a menu, and an OPEN sign for your private pizzeria. Is anyone getting hungry? But wait… don’t eat the play-doh just yet… the website has ideas for snacks too because all this imagination can really build up an appetite. You can make your own organic pizza muffins or soup. Yum!
The fun and imagination is endless. Life is short, “Play-Doh” a little or a lot and the Play-Doh activity website is the perfect place for ideas and information like how to clean that play-doh off our furniture and carpets.
