Being an educator myself, I try and choose open-ended play materials for Gunbir, that are fun, versatile and facilitate learning. Both G and I love experimenting with Play-Doh. I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said it’s rather necessary to expose kids to Play-Doh at a young age. He does not only explore his creativity with Play-Doh but the activities also help strengthen his tiny muscles as he rolls, flattens, pounds, chops, pokes, pinches, and cuts Play-Doh. Play-Doh has a variety of kits to choose from. We tried their Number and Counting variant from the Shape and Learn range. It allows us to learn numerals, counting and concepts like less and more, even and odd and more while we play. Play-Doh is so soft and safe in terms of materials that it is made of. It is a foolproof way of keeping my boy engaged and entertained while he learns.
