Play dough only lasts in our house because it’s ground into the carpet. I thought I could get over my play dough angst, but after I ran a poll question on facebook this past weekend, about what to do indoors with a toddler, my friend Rose (whose BIRTHDAY is TODAY!!) offered COLORED RICE.
Throw it in a box, give him some spoons and construction vehicles and VOILA! he only stopped because ninety minutes later, it was dinner time.
