Oh, you heard?
Well, it surpassed the "hobby" stage a long time ago. At this point, the Play-Doh company should be personally thanking me.
After watching a few Play-Doh tutorials on YouTube, I noticed Kendall's interest increase dramatically. Not only did she want to do play-doh ALL THE TIME, but she started mumbling under her breath as she was playing, creating her own "video" as she constructed her creations. As a mom who isn't opposed to a bit of iPad play (there, I said it), but would like to encourage as much time away from the screen as possible, I've been thrilled she wants to spend so much time playing imaginatively.
As a reward for weeks of good behavior, Kendall chose a new Play-Doh princess set and has been working non-stop on perfecting her princess gowns.

P.S. At our pre-school Back-to-School night, Kendall's teacher mentioned that the best thing we can be doing as parents is giving kids play-doh at home...it helps them strengthen fingers and develop fine motor skills. I'd say we're a step ahead on that front :)
