B decided that he needed to make an "occapus" because that was the picture on the pack. I rolled out the sausage shaped legs and B joined them together and made the face.
A remade his snail on a skateboard (it is an homage to "Eric" the skateboarding snail in Snailsbury Tails childrens cartoon series on CBBC).
R made two snails by using coils although these didn't survive being examined by B :(
We followed the recipe at Prekinders which used boiling water rather than heating the dough in a pan - much easier than others I have tried.
In the end though we used trucks,cars and dinosaurs to make impressions in the playdough instead
and used cookie cutters to cut out shapes
Of course the playdough gets put aside to use another day for counting games and spelling mats.
