If there’s one thing my family can all agree on when it comes to play time, it’s Play-Doh. I have to admit, I’m a little obsessed with Play-Doh myself because I was never allowed to have it as a child. While everyone has fond memories of that famous Play-Doh smell, all I remember is just wanting to get my hands on it and start sculpting. It’s so much fun when my girls imagine something and then create it with their Play-Doh and tools. Fun fact- when I was potty training my second daughter, she refused to cooperate but finally agreed to use the potty in exchange for a new Play-Doh kitchen. Since she’s received that Play-Doh set, she’s been fully potty trained!
To celebrate the many years of happy memories brought to you and your family by Play-Doh, September 16 is the day we celebrate this magical molding dough. This year’s theme for World Play-Doh day is National Pride where Play-Doh fans can sculpt landmarks, cultural icons, patriotic symbols, or anything else that represents national pride. Photos of sculpts must be shared directly to the official Play-Doh Facebook page from now through September 14th and must be family friendly. The sculpts chosen for the #WorldPlayDohDay Parade will be featured on the Play-Doh Facebook page on September 16th.
Since my husband is a history teacher, this project was a fun lesson for our whole family. We sat down with our daughters to create something that represented national pride and our oldest daughter was able to use her Play-Doh tools to help us create something for the #WorldPlayDohDay Parade. Check it out:
I’m still torn between the two images above with the flag- I will submit one of the two, or maybe both! I would love to see what you come up with for National Pride during #WorldPlayDohDay!
