Oh no it’s Play-Doh

Oh no it’s play-doh. The P word! The word that sends a feeling of fear and dread into straight into the heart of any parent. I set up Lily’s art table. It is a foldable table that is mostly used for Lily’s Arts & Crafts, which will be clear to see in the photo below. This time though she didn’t want to do art, she wanted to get the play-doh out. She has been doing lots of art as usual, which I will show later in the post. So I guess she wanted a change.

Oh no it’s play-doh

Whenever we seem to be running out of the stuff, their mum goes and buys loads more. Which I really appreciate….

The stuff gets everywhere, and as any parent who is crazy enough to let their child have play-doh will know. It is a right pain in the arse to clean up, especially if it’s been trodden in the carpet.

Lily’s paintings

She coloured in a mask picture, and then wanted to make some actual masks. I cut an eye mask out of paper for her to decorate, and then we managed to find a plain face mask that she could decorate. Lily loves decorating them, and really loves wearing them too.

The next three pieces are all quite different. Lily has been practising drawing animals, which is something she’s not too confident with. Often when she struggles with something, she will get frustrated and give up. So it’s been nice to see her really trying to improve over the last week.

She also cut out a aeroplane shape and put it on a black card background. Then she used blow straw painting to decorate. I really love this one, I think it looks great. Finally she had done a self portrait, I particularly like the crazy hair.

As always Lily would like to hear which ones are people favourite, so please comment in the box below. Now speak of “oh no it’s play-doh”, it’s time I went and saw what the mess is like….

Dad Does Autism

My name is Adam. I live with my partner Natalie, and our 2 children Jack and Lily. Both children are autistic, it is now my mission to show what life around autism is like. Spread the awareness and gain the acceptance that autistic people deserve.

      Thank you, sometimes I’m allowed to join in with projects, other times I’m not allowed to even see it until it’s finished.

    Used to love Playdoh when I was a child, always found it interesting trying to make different objects, always turned out as a failure though. Hope your keeping well. Stay safe 😁

    This made me laugh because I was just talking about this with my MIL recently. I HATE playdoh. With a passion. Burn it all to the ground. LOL.

    I used to love playdoh when I was a kid, but my mom had a rule, that we only use it in the backyard. But it worked because I used to make stars and leave them out in the sun to harden lol. Best of luck with the cleanup! Thanks for sharing.
    Stay safe. 🙂

    Do I remember play doh! The stuff gets all crusty and brittle when it gets into the carpet, and it is a frustration to clean up because it never, never stays in the play space. 🙂 Here to you cleaning it up.

    I love Lily’s middle mask! She looks like one of the spirit women from Legend of Korra, an animated TV series.

    Playdoh! The thing that my 3 year old asks me to get out and play with her, sets up all the colours (we have at least 15-20) and get out ALLLLL the tools etc. and then she decides she’s done after 5 minutes!

    I love the self portrait! And I’m also a fan of the hair. This took me way back, play-doh I think was my favourite thing on earth when I was younger. I never quite realised how much it stressed the adults out 😂

      When you get your own kids, you realise just how much you must have stressed your parents out 😂

    I loved playing with play-doh when I was a kid. Play-doh helps me to enhance my creativity. Btw, I enjoyed looking at your daughter’s artworks. Keep it up.

    Oh wow, Play Doh is such a classic!! I loved them as a kid, haha. My mom always had a pad for me so I don’t get the coloring on the furniture or anything. Lily does a great job with her art!
