Last Christmas, Sam received an advent calendar from Grandma Navarro. This year, to fill it, we bought a package of mini play-doh tubs and Sam got one every other day. This proved to be a mistake; the regular infusions of a small volume of play-doh led us to only allow him to play with small amounts at a time. The small amounts made it hard to make anything meaningful, resulting in it being abandoned quickly, dropped on the floor, and otherwise abused and thrown out. Yesterday, Emily made a large batch of Kool-aid playdough. Sam had a lot more fun with that!
