It’s winter so the weather is cold, the days are short, and the kids are bored. We have had some radical weather this year. Snow, rain, and sleet in the desert! The colder and wetter weather is definitely not something we are all used to, but we need it so we try not to complain. However, it is much harder to accept when you have some rather bored and LOUD children screaming about said boredom. So The Boy’s Store is here to aid you in your moments of exhaustion and we bring you gifts of imagination, creativity, and play dough!
Play dough is a fabulous game when you are stuck indoors. It is creative and fun and can be changed in to any shape or game you want. Get the kids to compete. See who can make the best dog, cat, fish. Get them to guess what the other is creating. Build castles, cars, and dinosaurs. The possibilities are endless.
Play dough can get expensive though, especially when it dries out quickly. So make your own for a bargain. Head to the dollar store and pick up a few boxes of corn starch and some good smelling cheap hair conditioner. This combination may sounds bizarre, but it actually creates the softest and most malleable play dough ever. Pick up a little food dye and make it any color you want.
