Chubby Worms


People who know me know that I am keen on making stuff from scratch, whether it is pickles or tartlets or birthday invitations. But for some reason the idea of making homemade Play-doh just doesn’t appeal. Maybe it’s something about that distinct Play-doh smell, or the fact that my babe looked so joyful when she pointed out the colors of the cap containers at the CVS.

This long time favorite toy not only is great to help the babe learn colors, be imaginative, and work on motor skills, but Play-doh time is a great anytime activity to give you some non-chasing play time. If you are looking for malleable inspiration, check out Hasbro’s website; otherwise, even if you aren’t particularly crafty your babe likely will delight in forming a fleet of what my toddler calls “chubby worms!”
