Fall is here which means everything pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice can come out! I mean there are few people on this earth who don’t enjoy the cosiness of fall, amIright? 

Growing up in Florida, fall really wasn’t a thing. Growing up Hispanic in Florida meant Fall was nonexistent or a strange fairytale you had heard of in books but was just a fairytale.

I think that’s why as an adult living in places that .Which inspires me to think outside the box when it comes to sensory play with my kids.

One of our favorite activities for kids is playing with playdough. I mean who doesn’t?

Part of the fun of playing with playdough is getting creative with it.

That’s why this blog post is dedicated to scented playdough fun!

When it comes to younger sensory learners, making peanut butter playdough and marshmallows playdough is perfect for early childhood fun.

Here’s your chance to bring some sensory fun for your little one. This easy recipe will be a favorite for everyone.

Even larger kids. In addition to the fun you’ll have making it, there are lots of ways to incorporate learning.Easy Pumpkin playdough

    I never thought there would be edible play dough. I would be careful to make sure that hands are washed prior to playing.
