My son had a great time experimenting with the dough. We've been spending time doing lots of baking together and he was eager to role-play this baking in his play with the dough. He rolled, cut, and baked lots of pumpkin 'cookies'.
Often onlookers don't realize the fine motor control it takes to cut out shapes using tiny cookie cutters. The art of rolling, cutting, and lifting without breaking the design is quite complicated, especially for little fingers. It takes much concentration!
What we loved best about this play dough however was the wonderful autumn smell the pumpkin pie spice gave it! It was delicious and inspired many hours of exploration in our kitchen!
