Playing With Playdough

Sharlene has a playdough set which was given to her by my sis. Last weekend she was playing with it together with her piao cheh.

I sat there for a moment to watch them play. It was rather funny to look at how the kids handle the dough. Instead of using the various molds to shape the dough and be creative with it, the 2 girls prefer to just play their own ways. Sharlene was basically rolling, squeezing and cutting up the dough into bits and pieces with a plastic knife. Her piao cheh did almost the same thing too.

There are 3 tubs of playdough in the set – green, yellow and blue colors. After playing with it numerous times, the colors got mixed together and everything now looked green.

They spent more than half an hour meddling with the green dough. It was a huge mess at the end of the play with tiny crumbs of dough dropped all over the floor, on the carpet and with some of it sticking on their legs and hands. They happily left the scene whilst I had to clear up the big mess! The next time when they play with this, I better place some papers on the floor to catch the bits and pieces.
