Play Dough Flowers !!

Putti really enjoyed this simple and sweet activity! These coiled flowers are easy peasy to make.
It is always fun to play with play dough. And like most kids, Putti loves making play dough snakes and then she would take her snakes to everyone at home, asking them to touch. And if we hesitate pretending fear She says in a very assuring tone 'Dont be scared its a play snake, its ok to touch". She cracks me up :-)

To create these coiled flowers putti started out by making a snake which is her favorite activity. 
 She shaped them into spirals. Start at one end and slowly coil the rest around it and pinch the end to keep it together. This took sometime for her to learn, but soon she was a Pro !!
 Lay the spirals flat on the table and attach another coil (green) to it as a stalk.
 We ended up making a whole bunch of spiral flowers!!!  

 Other simple flowers we have made with play dough in the recent past....

Fun! I love new ideas for play dough - Henry has yet to learn how to roll the snake, but he often asks us to make it for him. I'll have to show him this flower and I bet it'll be a new request!


We can't use play-doh b/c it has wheat...boo.
