Play-Doh has been a staple at our home for probably seven years now. We have all kinds of Play-Doh toys and tools. I have to be honest though that after seven years I seem to have lost all sense of creativity when it comes to playing with Play-Doh. I feel like Iâ€™ve made my fair share of snakes and snowballs. I know Iâ€™m not alone in this either as I had a girlfriend complain once of the same thing!
When given the opportunity to review Play-Dohâ€™s Christmas Craft Fun book I jumped at the chance. We currently have a four year old and that seems to be the perfect Play-Doh age at our house. Weâ€™ve been making a lot of snakes and snowmen! The books really couldnâ€™t have come at a more perfect time!
The books come with 4 small cans of Play-Doh and two plastic tools (roller and knife). There are pages of sample ideas to make and they do have a range from simple to complex making the book great for a span of ages and abilities.
Iâ€™ll admit I was a little worried the book would stifle creativity a little and that my little one would get stuck on trying to make things just as the book showed but that just didnâ€™t happen. She enjoyed trying to make things like the book but also things all on her own. I have to say that working on the projects in the book has proven to be some great bonding time for me and my four year old.
I think that these books would be a great Christmas gift or gift in general. Buying toys anymore seems so tough because letâ€™s be honest thereâ€™s a lot of junk out there. Iâ€™d definitely recommend this book! I will point out that the books do not come with enough Play-doh to complete all the projects in the book. I figure though what a perfect little add on though if youâ€™re buying this for a gift!
Just a little note to add…there are other Play-Doh craft fun books including Halloween Craft Fun which is equally as cute!
