This idea is just too good not to share, and so in keeping with our penchant for incorporating nature and intriguing sensory elements in our creative process. It’s one of those ideas that make me want to smack myself upside the head and say “doh!”, as in, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Instead, I’ll just say “Play-doh!” and thank you to Small Potatoes for the inspiration.

With Spring approaching, and Earth Day this weekend, I wanted to create an activity that celebrated both occasions. One of my toddlers hand-delivered a bouquet of flowers for me on my birthday about 10 days ago, and they had long since started to wilt. I couldn’t bare to throw them out yet. Surely there was SOME way I could re-use them or prolong their life? That IS what we’ve been talking about all week, after all!
