August 24: Late this morning, Book Boy and Little Sister decided that they’d like to play with their Play-Doh. (They have a ton of Play-Doh and accessories, but don’t play with it often.) I said that was a great idea, and we set about clearing off the play table and setting everything up.
That was at 11:30.
We started cleaning up at 5:15.
Little Sister played with the Play-Doh from 11:30 until 5:15! with only a short break for lunch. Book Boy played with it on and off throughout the afternoon, probably for about 2.5 hours. I loved playing with Play-Doh as a kid (and still enjoy it with my kids) but I don’t remember ever playing with it for this long.
There was no fussing, no crying, no fighting. The kids were happy and well-behaved all afternoon.
(I wonder whether I can get them to do it again tomorrow … )
