Frozen Flowers Sensory Ice Play

AD | Post contains affiliate links (marked with *) I’m honestly not one of those really parents who can come up with really interesting and creative things to do with Erin unless it’s a print out of some kind, a toy that already exists or card/ board games. It’s just not me. However, recently we have been spending a lot of time in the garden and I wanted to do something a bit different with Erin so I decided to try to use the Tuff Tray* a bit more. Something we haven’t done a lot of with Erin is playing

Tuff Tray Play: Playdoh

It’s been a couple of months now since we’ve had our Tuff Tray. I hate to say it but we haven’t used it nearly enough.

I want her to play in muddles, jump in mud and get food in her hair. The nursery she’ll be going to in January really promotes messy play as well so I wanted to get Erin used to it ASAP.
