New Playtime Fun

We had a couple of new items out at playtime recently. Mostly I just need to give a big shout-out to Mrs. B. for the wonderful Dora play set. The children just LOVE it, and it's big enough there can be quite a few there at a time.

Mrs. B. donated a Dora the Explorer play set that we thought we would switch out with our dollhouse for a while. Our dollhouse was a bit smaller than this playhouse. And the accessories....I just can't say enough! We all love it. We hear a lot of, "Swiper no swiping."

Another new item I got out is a new item I got from Discount School Supply: Super Lightweight Air-Dry Putty. I can not explain to you how this stuff feels. It's "softer" than play dough and just plain "therapeutic" to play with. Mrs. T and I just sat there squeezing the stuff. It also works great with the cutters and cut-outs. When it got a little stiff from being out too long, Mrs. T. added some drops of water and worked them through--Good to go again. It was a nice change from the play dough and play foam.

I think its really sweet that some one donated the Dora the Explorer play set and perked up the mood of all the lovely kids in your preschool. What a thoughtful gesture!
