How do you feed your child’s imagination?

Posted by   + Show Post

Encouraging your kids to be creative and use their imagination is just as important as making sure they eat the right foods, brush their teeth twice a day or pay attention in school. 


We gave 10 moms a  PLAY-DOH Animal Duffel Bag & a PLAY-DOH Case of Colors so that they could set up fun play-date with their child.  We then asked them to share their thoughts, experience and best of all - their creations with all of you! 


How do you feed your child’s imagination?

 We have a rule on the tv. If hes good he can watch 1 hr of it a day. So many kids are entertained all day long and cant entertain themselves.

Such a cutie!


Quoting army_wifey_06:

My 2 1/2 year old son Jaxon was so excited when we received the package of Play-Doh! I hadn't received the assignment yet but he didn't want to wait so we played with it right away Lol.

The animal duffel bag was awesome and there are so many neat things you can make with all the tools! Ds loved all the different colors and he had to try each one! I was excited that we got chosen for the program because I was just telling my dh the other day that we needed to get some "tools" for ds to use with his Play-Doh. 

Ds has such a blast with the Play-Doh that he played for a little over an hour before we had to put it away so we could have dinner. Everyday since we received the Play-Doh he plays with it! It's the first thing he asks to do when he gets up from his nap. My dh always offers to "help" him lol but sometimes I wonder if he has more fun with it than ds does! They love making stuff together! I enjoyed playing with ds too. It's one of the things I remember most about my childhood is we had a TON of Play-Doh and a big bag of "tools" to use with it. We would always have a blast when my cousins would come over and we would all play for hours. 

Animals that ds made :) 

This and the scissors are his favorite tool. He likes to make "spaghetti" then cut it. 

We will be purchasing many more Play-Doh products in the future! I'm going to get him some for Easter and I know he will be so excited!

fun stuff 

Quoting VintageWife:

Okay, sorry it took so long. With this week being Spring Break, I had to wait for the kids to all be home.

My nephew came over today so we had a chance to have a playdoh playdate. The kids loooooove playdoh. I was never a fan of it, but the more playdates we do with it, the more I like it.

My nephew is 11, our oldest is 8 1/2, our other son is turning 5 (tomorrow!) and our daughter is 21 months. This was her first time with playdoh. She mostly transferred it from container to container, but we had to stop her from eating it a few times. When it stuck to her hand, she'd try to take it off with her teeth instead of her other hand...LOL!

The older two are pretty creative and the 5 yr old likes to just cut the playdoh. He did make a dog with my help, but mostly he liked the scissors. He even cut the dog in half! LMBO!!!

Here are some of our creations...

Caleb's dog...

It's green cause he thinks EVERYTHING should be :)

Here is everyone playing!

Here is a cat Daddy helped Jocelyn make...

Here is what Daddy worked on whenever she wasn't playing...

I had squished out some yellow playdoh and stated it looked like fries so this is what we came up with...

My nephew was working on a panda...

Here is a little snowman made with a playdoh snowman shape I found :)

Here is our oldest creating the Earth :)

Here is our crocodile at the lake

It was a great time! We loved the shapes and tools and it's really awesome that they come in a carrying bag. I'm going to be looking for more shapes and tools as gift ideas!

How cool!  What kid doesn't like Play doh?  When I break out the Play Doh, the whole family starts playing with it.
