Create a New World--100 Days of Play

Today I'm excited to share a simple, fun way for you to play with your children.  The fact that it is good for their fine-motor skills, language development, color recognition, creative skills, and relationship with you is just a lucky side effect!

I'm joining with 99 other bloggers to bring you 100 Days of Play, the brainchild of Rachel at Sun Scholars.  Click here for more details and *100* fun, simple ways to play with your children!

Today's activity is creating a new world with play dough!  Grab a pile of play dough (or make your own!) and start talking to your children!

Tell them it's time to create a new world.  Ask them what kind of people they should make.  Make some!
Ask them what kind of animals they should have.  Make some!
Ask them what kind of shops they should have.  Make some!
Ask them what kind of homes they should have.  Make some!
Ask them what kind of other places they should have.  Make some!

Use any kinds of props you want...paper, pompoms, and toothpicks work wonderfully.
Take pictures of your new world!

How will YOU play with your kids today?
