They broke out their play dough stuff and a few cookie cutters and got to work making a huge mess (luckily Mommy thought to play in the outside playroom!). The glitter I think gave it extra pizazz so we ended up adding a few different colors to the 7:1 ratio of flour to oil recipe. After a little experimenting with the usual shaping, molding, and cutting, the girls put together a little pretend bakery so I gave them a few muffin tins and candles. They were immersed!
