This week Hunter played with playdough for the first time. He is learning the color red, so I let him check out some red playdough.
He definitely thought it was interesting. He loved touching it and squeezing it.
I used a cookie cutter and cut out a heart shape… Hunter tried to put the heart back.
He loved seeing the results of pressing the cookie cutter into the playdough.
Of course he had to taste it.
And play peek-a-boo with it.
He loved playing with playdough and it kept him occupied for quite a while!
(A note of caution- when I worked in a daycare center there was a little girl who stuffed playdough into her mouth and it got stuck on the roof of her mouth. It had to scraped off and was pretty hard to get out. So, keep a close eye on your toddlers when they are playing with playdough.)
