I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hasbro. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

World Play-Doh dayI think everyone I know has owned Play-Doh, it’s been around since the 50’s. I remember making pretend Play-Doh ice cream cones as a kid. Actually I think everything I made turned out to be a food item. “Don’t eat that”, I remember my Mom saying to me, and now I’m telling my kids the same thing. 

Last week I rolled out our favorite Mostly Math Teaching Tablecloth to protect my dining room table from the Play-Doh explosion that was about to commence. My youngest was making coins to count and place on the numbers.

So the girls got busy make fun little creations together. My Preschooler likes using the tools to cut of shapes.World Play-Doh day

It made me laugh when I saw my oldest have made a pizza out of Play-Doh. She even sliced it up and served a slice to everyone in the family. World Play-Doh day

But then we started working on our World Play-Doh day sculpt. We had to think of some clever American icons that stood out to us. After some brainstorming with my daughter, we decided to make an American Alligator. We found a picture online so that she had something to go off of and she started creating. She even made some scenery, like water, grass, and a rock. She gave the rock som texture with an old hairbrush. It was quite clever. World Play-Doh day

She used some of the tools to add some finishing touches as well.
