Combining play dough with rocks for creative sensory play is always popular in our house, and this week there was an extra special component because we made pumpkin pie scented play dough using Tinkerlab’s play dough recipe! It made a LOT of gorgeous play dough – plenty to send most of it off for Johnny’s preschool class, and still have a bit left over for ourselves.
Adding a small toy hamster opened up a whole new pretend play world for the kids within this already-popular activity! All three kids worked together to build the hamster’s house, complete with toys, a bed, and a toilet!
