Playdough Tips and Tricks

Recently I got a new kitchen table. I am just in love with it. I have only used hand-me-down tables my entire marriage. I was thrilled to get my own style and size table I wanted. I have never been to picky with what Little Man did at my tables, that is until I got one I wanted to stay nice. I was worried about doing Playdough with him once I got it. The new table has ridges and I didn't want Playdough to get stuck in them. I didn't want him to play on my floors because of the same problem. With older wood floors you can find gaps and it's hard to get stuff out of them. I have some pink sprinkles still stuck in my wood floors from a while back. My solution was to buy a cheap shower curtain and use it like a table cloth while we play with the Playdough. It comes off soo easily and it's great when you have several children playing together because you can make it really big. I use it for paint time too. I have loved this and think you might too!

Ooh! I like your table. Maybe you should do a post on that! Also good idea on the shower curtain. I don't like my table right now, but when I get a new one I'm afraid I won't be sooo "nice" about his art projects, so thanks for the tip!

hey girl! I'm your newest follower! I found your blog through the mamas nestwork! Its a really neat blog! I read your intro and you write about testing out products and doing reviews. I've been wondering for the longest time about trying that out but I dont know if I should trust those secret shopper companies; Do you have any advice on a trusted one?
