playdough fun

it's gotta be one of the best things ever invented...
it smells good {i know, i'm weird}, it's super fun, and it brings out the kid in everyone!

good old fashioned playdough!

now that jada has preschool, during sofia's naps {p is obviously in high school}, i get brooke only time two days a week! i love it...because we get to do things that are just for brooke.

when jada plays with playdough, she mixes the colors and it flips out brooke, so i have a "brooke only" tub stash...and we pulled it out.
our very first creations...horses, of course!
{you know brooke can talk to them, so they told her what colors to use...see the tips of color?!}yes...there's an elephant hanging out too! back off...they needed a friend!
next...you have to have a princess..."rap" {rapunzel} in this case, with her prince charming. and they are all dolled up in their ball clothes too!

then we totally had to make a wedding cake for rap and the prince...
{i had a blast making the candles}

and a cupcake to spare, bc u never want to run out of cake!

brooke is growing up soooo fast, but i love taking in every single second i can to spend that alone time just "being" together!

so, grab some playdough and...play! it's super fun, i'm not gonna lie!
what is it they say...take time to smell the playdough. :)

Playdough and us don't get along that well. Considering the kids get it all over the carpet. we save it for a very well supervised mommy and kid time.
I make my own playdough..talk about smelling good..it's made with koolaide..msg me if you want the recipe.
Great pictures...looks like a tonne of fun

I too like the smell of play-doh. Not sure why. Cute creations you both made and how fun to have one on one time with Brooke.

We love playdoh at our house. I actually found some at a local fair last year - all natural, doesn't dry out and smells yummy enough to eat. My new all time favorite!!

I haven't played with playdoh in YEARS! It reminds me of one of those stress-balls though. Maybe more adults SHOULD play with play-doh!!

I LOVE the smell of play dough too. I was disappointed the first time I tasted it and discovered it DIDN't taste like it smelled. :)

I can't stand the smell of playdough, but kids love it so much, you just can't say "no"!

Super fun!

Several years ago I was getting my nails done and the tech was using a certain product and I said, "This smells just like playdough." She goes, "Ohmygosh!! I've been trying for years to figure out what this smells like! And that's exactly it!!!"
