On the perils of play dough
I've been meaning to make fresh play dough for the little ones for the last month. Today I finally did. I thought it would be a quick, simple, clean thing. (Apparently, I haven't done this for a while.) Making it wouldn't have been too bad, except that Miss S wanted to join in the fun. This wasn't supposed to induce tantrums...but it did. Once the dough was done, Young T and Miss S thoroughly enjoyed it. It was much more fun than playing with the dry stuff last week. I now have tiny bits of play dough all over the floor, on the chairs, smashed onto the table, and smashed into Young T's pants--so much for clean. But, by far, the silliest and worst part of it all is that I seem to have gotten a blister from stirring the thick dough. Maybe tomorrow I can find a quick, simple, clean way to entertain these busy kids.
