OT: I hate playdoh!!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

My little one has cabin fever from being sick and not really being able to run around and play much.  I invited her BFF over this afternoon and they have been into EVERYTHING.  We are talking from reading books, to playing Lego's, Babydoll's, watching movies, and the PLAYDOH.  I have found playdoh squished into the cracks on my dining room table, balls on the floor all over our great room, down the hall and into the bathroom.  I have found little tiny crumbs everywhere.  I just spent 20 mins trying to clear a place to feed these children dinner.

I can't wait for the LO to be able to go play with her friends outside.....they make less of a mess inside that way.  LOL  Just sidewalk chalk all over my driveway....I can handle that mess, I let the rain wash it away.

 OMG my 10 y/o just got a huge crack out of the prank, it sounds like something he would do to his brother...lol

I am no fan of the play doh.  My sons put a brown wad on the lid of my daughter's toilet.  Can freak a gal out when glancing in the bathroom.

We love playdough! My 3 year old was busy with his this afternoon. Only problem is he snuck a few bites.

It being all over the house isn't my problem its the stink it has. I girls play with it in our sun room a lot. I have made the homemade and it still has the stink.

That's true. The homemade stuff is way better but I still hate playdough,lol. The kids always mix the colors, leave it out, smear it all over the place and grind it into the carpet...

Quoting Molimomma:

I discovered the homemade stuff is 1000x better than the store bought. The store bought is WAY messier. I don't know why it's so crumbly or smeary but once I made some at home and saw the difference I won't buy the store stuff again. 




I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

Have you heard of edible playdough?

Playdoh has always been banned from my house since the smell of it makes my throat feel like it's closing up. LOL

I'm with you! They always want to play with it, and with all the accessories. It takes 10 minutes to set it all up, 2 minutes to smush all the colours together, 1 minute to get bored and then 30 minutes to get them to put it all away! Arg! Bring on the warm weather and sidewalk chalk. I love that!

Maybe Fimo dough would work better. We have passed the Playdoh phase and onto beading, which can also be a major pain. Try picking up all those tiny little beads out of shag carpeting. Scotch tape helps. Fimo and Sculpy dough are not so crumbly but they are much more expensive. Too bad we don't teach our kids how to play at being janitors or maids, where they can actually clean house as their form of play :)

I usually don't like the smell much either but I made pumpkin pie playdough a year ago and it still smells fantastic! I could sit and sniff that all day :)
