Joyful Mama's Play Dough Day Breakfast Table, and some inspiration!

Hello everyone and ....

In case you missed the post from earlier this week, here's what I am on about:

Last Saturday, 18 September 2010, was National Play Dough Day in  the USA. I only discovered this fact a day later. Being a huge play dough fan, this was a great disappointment...but since I am not in the US, and since we don't have a Play Dough Regulatory Board here in South Africa, I decided to take matters in my own hands and declared today JOYFUL MAMA'S PLAY DOUGH DAY!! And all that means is that I would love for you all to join us as we have some play dough fun today. It would be super if you'd let me know how you celebrated - you can either blog about it and leave a comment with a link to your post, or if you are not a blogger, simply take pictures of what you got up to, and email it to me. All submissions must please reach me no later than Saturday, 25 September, and be sure to check in on Monday to see what everyone else got up to!


To kick off the celebrations, my dear ones woke up to a Happy Play Dough Day breakfast:

We've been reading  - and loving  - Mouse Paint recently, so that was the inspiration for the table decor!! Later today we will be mixing play dough, Mouse Paint style, to practice colour mixing!

And here is a little treat for you - a collection of some of my favourite play dough ideas from around the blogosphere!

Looking forward to seeing what YOU came up with!!
