My daughter has been a huge fan of the smartphone since she was about a year old. My son, bless him, has always followed in his sister’s footsteps a few years later. He is almost 3, and he has just developed an
obsession appreciation for it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it took him this long. Because now all he wants to do is sit and watch a soft-spoken lady open nesting dolls, pez dispensers, and play-doh covered anything.
Don’t worry, we certainly limit the screentime. But when he does get to watch whatever he wants, that’s what he chooses.
My daughter has a love for the same videos, but she has ventured out a bit here and there.
It’s pretty funny to watch them play on their own. Often times I’ll hear my daughter say something like, “Hi guys, today we are going to…” as if she was the star of her own video. My son does something similar, but he isn’t quite talking in sentences yet.
It may sound silly, but if my kiddos love watching someone else open things covered in Play-doh as much as they do, I can only imagine what their reaction might be if they get to do it themselves!
IMPORTANT!! Remember, Play-doh dries out. Do not cover toys or eggs several days ahead. For best results, cover the night before or the morning of.
What do you like to do for your kiddos’ Easter baskets? Do they like to watch the Play-doh videos too?
