Boys and Playdoh

What ever happened to keeping the colors separated? The boys came over last night while their parents went out to dinner. I had 2 packages of freshly new playdoh for them for Easter but we never got around to opening it. We started out by playing with one color each and making cookies with the cutters and everyone was sticking to the rule of no mixing the colors.............Then as the night went on......there's Gray.....He decided he wanted to design his own snake, as you can see. Noah even joined in the action. Well, you might ask, "who is the adult here and why did you break the rule of mixing the playdoh?
I see it as, it eventually gets mixed anyways and if the kid is quiet and having fun, Big Deal! It was on sale.....No one got hurt....and I have something interesting to blog about..... P.S. we even played with bubbles in the kitchen. Now I don't have to mop the floor!

I have to admit, this tower wold have stressed me out big time. I am one of those "keep the colors separate" people. I have started to overcome it through the years simply because I have two boys. It is a very nice and colorful tower and my boys got excited when they saw it on the computer this morning.

A great way to make sure the colors don't get mixed up is to just use one color at a time! But it's so fun to use all the colors! : ) You're such a fun Mimi.

My kids ALWAYS mix the colors! It's so irritating to my husband and I.

How fun! I love that you let them mix the colors. I admit it bugs me too, but from my teacher perspective, let them be creative. If they only imagined in one color, that would be so boring. You are a great Mimi to let them play and get messy!

The kids always seem to mix the play doh. I have this recipe I got from another blogger for edible peanut butter play doh if you are interested! I like it just because my youngest cam play with them!

They will so enjoy those memories.
Julia at age 10 still looks forward to getting together with Grandma to play.
