Play dough, the ultimate evil toy, nope
I thought that play dough would really be the evilest thing to get, as Jake has so many sensory issues, Any type of activity he won't touch. We tried it a year ago and he acted like some one cut off his arm.
For Christmas someone got him star wars pay dough factory, and I had all the other assceories, like scissors, and shapes. one day in a desperate need of getting him to settle down my bp was 151/111 (those of you who don't know I had a heart attack Jan 31st. And have had a heart monitor on for 2 weeks, and have 2 weeks to go)
Anywho, I drug it all out, and prayed Savannah wouldn't eat it, my dogs wouldn't eat or it get embedded in their hair and the carpet. Jake sat at the table for hours playing with it. I was impressed and greatly relieved, the running stopped, the screaming and hitting stopped. I am glad I pulled it out of the cupboard. :woohoo:'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

If you're ever in a bind and don't have any play dough, before the days of play dough, I gave my kids uncooked pie crust to mold. It's a good alternative if your kids put things in their mouths.

My mom made peanut butter play dough. It's really easy to make(you can find the recipe online) and it's a nice sweet treat when you're done playing. Who knows, with the sensory issues it may be a neat experience for both of you.Jamey

I also used to make my own play doh for my kids as well the preschool where I taught. All you need are flour, water and salt. You can use food coloring if you want to. I don't remember the recipe, but I am sure you can find it on the internet. I also know there is one that you cook and it uses cream of tartar.
