We have played with Playdough off and on for about a year. It’s never been a really big hit with J. It’s something he will play with, but it just never kept his attention for more than a few minutes at a time.
I love playdough, even as an adult, and was not about to give up on the wonderful stuff!
Well, fast forward to Christmas when J received a few Chuck & Friends Playdoh kits. Let me tell you, it changed the way he played with play dough!
J loves anything and everything that has to do with construction, so these were an immediate hit! Since then, we have been playing the heck out of playdough!
He included more “boy toys” into his playdough play…tools!
Later, J asked me to make a train with his playdough. Really!? A train!? How in the heck was I supposed to make a train? Then a stroke of brilliance! Cookie cutters!
A few weeks later, I brought out the Melissa & Doug Shape, Model and Mold set. J really enjoys stamping, cutting, and rolling the dough.
I am one of those “crazy Moms” who keeps the playdough out and available for J at all times. The dough is in a baggie and held with the rest of his playdough toys in a plastic bin in his playroom. He is learning that it has to stay in his playroom (which has a tile floor).
Having it available to him has encouraged him to play with it. And has he played! It has come out almost every single day since Christmas! Got to love that!
How do your kids play with playdough?

The most popular way my son plays with his play dough includes car accessories and molds…boys! 😉
I’ve never seen these sets! My boys would love them!
My guys are every-day playdough-players, too. Our family room (play area) is carpeted, and I’ve found that homemade is easier to get out of the carpet than store-bought, so I’m always making it.
Lately the boys have been mixing playdough with their Angry Birds playsets, making helmets and such for the birds and pigs, and for making more homemade Angry Birds and pigs. They also use playdough to reinforce the structures they’re building with the Angry Birds “wood” pieces.
This looks really cute . We might have to look for it. My son is 5 and has never showed much interest with playdough. My older kids LOVED the stuff when they were little.

So, I was looking at your post with my 3 year-old in my lap. Looks like these playdough kits are in our future. I hadn’t seen them either. Now, he wants a steamroller. Guess I know what his Valentine’s Day gift will be! Thanks for the ideas.

This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!
