Thanks to Play-Doh for sending along the fun kit!
Yesterday was a big day for one of America’s all-time favorite brands for kids. It was Play-Doh’s 60th birthday! So many generations have enjoyed squishing, rolling, and making new creations out of that awesome stuff that comes in the yellow can.
One of my favorite toys growing up was a Play-Doh ice cream and soda fountain shop I had as a child. I loved making ice cream with blueberries sprinkled on top for all of my dolls. 🙂
Now my own girls get to enjoy Play-Doh and it’s one of my favorite things to get to play with them.
I love to watch their little minds get busy with all sorts of ideas for creation. I love the fact that playing with Play-Doh can result in some serious art time, some entrepreneurial time (my girls love to “sell” what they make!) and some time getting to imagine different awesome careers (engineer and cupcake maker all in one? Sure!).
I also love watching them work on their motor skills and strengthening their little hands while they make different shapes and designs. You never quite know where a play-doh session will take you, and I love that open-ended nature of it.
We’ve been playing with the Cupcake Celebration kit since Play-Doh just had a big birthday to celebrate. It’s loads of fun and very nicely priced at $19.99. I thought perhaps your child might enjoy getting to do the exact same thing, so let’s have a giveaway, shall we?
