PlayDoh DYI Activity
We were at IPC last weekend and while browsing through Toys 'R' Us, we saw this PlayDoh DYI Activity that they were having at their store. Took this opportunity to let the kids have some fun playing PlayDoh. It was the last venue for the event as they had this activity at other Toys 'R' Us. They set up a table near the entrance with a few chairs for kids. Parents who happen to be shopping around also stop by and let their kids have fun.
One che che and one kor kor was there to supervise the kids and to help them with this activity. They brought along two sets of the PlayDoh 'machine' which was the cake making station and the magic swirl ice-cream. With these two machine, the kids get to make their own 'cake' and 'ice-cream'.
I understand that PlayDoh helps children develop their motor skills and their hand-eye coordination. When my lil prince first started school, he had problems in holding the pencil, and I remembered his school teacher told me that PlayDoh activity will help him in manipulation of pencil grip. I must admit that we seldom allows him to play with his PlayDoh due to the mess but once in a blue moon I do let him have some fun. It's just that sometimes I find it a bit difficult to clean his fingers when the PlayDoh gets into his finger nails ^__^.
Here are some of the 'master piece' that the kids get to make with the PlayDoh.
