HAPPY 60TH ANNIVERSARY, PLAY-DOH!
Did you know that PLAY-DOH brand is celebrating its 60th anniversary? That’s 60 years of fun! A childhood staple since its introduction in 1956, the PLAY-DOH brand continues to captivate the imaginations of children and artists of all age. I remember so many hours of playing with PLAY-DOH modeling compound. I always created little people, pets, and furniture to set up in my make-believe house on the dining room table.
Now I have a daughter of my own and PLAY-DOH is so perfect for creative play. Parenting tip time: need to keep your little one occupied for a while? Get the PLAY-DOH! The bright colors, soft texture, and endless creative possibilities engage a child’s imagination.
PLAY-DOH TOWN PLAY SETS
We were super excited to receive four of the new PLAY-DOH Town play sets in the mail to try out (click the links to learn more about each one): PLAY-DOH Town Firehouse Playset, PLAY-DOH Town Ice Cream Truck Playset, PLAY-DOH Town Pet Store Playset, and a PLAY-DOH Town Figure Assortment.
Do you like to play with PLAY-DOH with your children? One of the best things about PLAY-DOH modeling compound is how it appeals to all ages and both boys and girls. The PLAY-DOH Town play sets just add to the fun as we line up the little figures to get ice cream from the town ice cream truck, or to visit the town pet shop, or work at the fire station. Endless play possibilities!
PLAY-DOH AT HOME AND AWAY
During our last week of being away for camp this summer (for my work, not recreation), I brought along the PLAY-DOH Town play sets. I’m so glad I did because it provided a fun, creative play activity for my daughter to enjoy with her babysitter indoors when it rained or when they needed a break from the heat outside. I would suggest purchasing a plastic storage container and labeling it “PLAY-DOH” and filling it with PLAY-DOH Town play sets to keep on hand at home and for easy portability to take on trips.
CREATIVE PLAY WITH PLAY-DOH
Moms and dads, isn’t it wonderful to give your child something that really sparks their imagination and creativity? I’m a busy working mom and with that sometimes comes a heap of guilt. But then I watch my daughter playing and talking out her imagined situations while displaying her sweet social skills, thoughtfulness, exercising reasoning and problem solving. Then I realize that we’re doing just fine!
Busy mamas everywhere… you’re doing a great job! Maybe better than you think some days. Keep working, loving, creating, leading, speaking, imagining, and demonstrating kindness in front of your children. They will continue to grow into the most amazing people as they follow your example.
Take a moment today and set aside all the responsibility that you juggle, and play with your little ones. Pull out the PLAY-DOH and create some fun.
Have a lovely and fun day!
