Play Dough For Sale

Thanks to Tita Corinne who taught Elise how to make play dough from scratch, the kids now have a renewed interest in molding and sculpting.  Elise tried to sell some in her school for P5 apiece but was gently told by Teacher that selling stuff in school is not permitted.  Too bad, she had 13 orders pending.  Her classmates' faces fell. So, she ended up "lending" them the play dough and Teacher said that if they lose it, they would have to pay for it. Too funny.

Meanwhile, Nacho enjoys them and makes waffles and pancakes for his three imaginary friends: Tatur, B.O. (don't ask me what they stand for, he said it doesn't stand for anything) and Baylon.  This imaginary friend thing is in itself another story.

The last time we played with these things was during the tsunami scare in February right after the Chile earthquake.  We had to stay indoors and so the kids made some pretend food for breakfast

and a birthday cake for Annie (Elise's baby doll).

Super creative, huh?  But we had some cheat sheets. Thanks to Tito Louie, who gave us three clay modeling books for kids.

They're called SMARTY Clay Modeling produced by Dolphin Books, published by Straight Lines International, Inc. located at Sterling Place, 2302 Pasong Tamo Ext., Makati City 1231, Philippines. 
This is not a paid advertisement.  I am just so happy with the little paperback books that make our playtime much more fun!
