Where is my Play-Doh?

Zac told me the other day that how come I never buy "Play-Doh" for him. I was very reluctant to buy bcos of the mess that it will create and also afraid Amos will unknowingly consume the "doh".
On my recent shopping trip, I ran out of toys to buy for the boys. So happened that the "Play-Doh" was on offer... ... and also the fact that I promised to get the boys a present this month from their good performance in their rewards book. Zac is leading with 5 star now & Amos is 4.

I din know that the "doh" is so soft. I have an impression its like "plastersine" but I'm wrong.
Its really very fun but messy and it gets stuck in between the nails if not washed clean after that.

Zac loves to play with this purple tools that cuts the doh into fine strips.


Amos was beaming with joy and he tried on all sorts of tools/stencils he could grab on. With such a fun toy, he totally forgotten that he's still nursing a weak body. His fever is under control now but his persistent cough will still trigger him to throw out. He has lost some weight definitely... sigh !! *heartache*


Who wouldn't love Amos? Such a darling boy to help me to keep the toys after play.... awwww.... *hugs*hugs* !!
Amos, get well soon so that you could return to school ok?

30 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Hi Janice,
I am back from a very needed rest. I was getting down right cranky after 656 posts.

I simply had to stop by and send you and the boys my love.

I am so sorry to hear that amos is not feeling well. I will keep him in my prayers.

But, my oh my, I think you may just have two budding artists on your hands there. They are doing a fantastic job with their play-doh.
Blessings of cheer and peace,
Jackie

hi jan! when i was a kid, i love plastersine. So when they came out with this playdoh & its 'tools', i was thrilled. I had an ice-cream machine. It was fun!

My darling & I was planning to buy chloe a playdoh set when she's older, mayb 6 more months. Like u said, we wouldn't want the kids to consume the 'doh'. :)

Zac looks like he's enjoying himself so much wt the purple tool. hehe..

i am glad that amos is smiling cheerfully. I was so worried about him when you said his mucus turned yellow oledi. Hope he'll get well soon! Love Love!! *muaks*

J@n!ce said...

Jean : Looks like we have the same fear too. Definitely better to let them play when older.

The play-doh temp puts his mind off his sickness. At least he could still play indoor despite unwell. YAY :)

Blur Ting said...

I didn't know Playdoh is so much fun! Like you, I always thought it is messy and gets stuck everywhere.

Your little one is such a darling. So responsible too. Hope he gets well soon.

The hot weather and bugs going around is no good for kids. Take care.

J@n!ce said...

Blur : We have same thoughts abt the playdoh. It is still as messy. I have to clean the table, the floor, the boys ...etc after each play. *sweat*

...but so long they are happy :)

just remember to ask them to wash the hand clean before any meal.

this is a training for amos and zac creativity!!

so amos feeling better?

J@n!ce said...

Leonard : He is back to school today. School informed us that we have to get a bottle of hand santizier for the child to use and label it with their names. I realized that not many kids are back to school. I bet many are also unwell. Sigh.... !!
