For Father’s Day, I wanted my boys to make something meaningful and lasting to show their dad their love.
These kid-made decorative bowls are perfect for even the littlest hands. Excellent for hand strengthening and fine motor skills.

Thank you to the Toybrary of Austin for generously giving my family a membership in exchange for showcasing some of their amazing toys!
Paint and Brushes
Use a little water to soften the clay. Form the dough into a bowl.
Encourage your kids to make textured impressions with their play dough tools.
After your kids have made all sorts of pretty patterns, let the clay air dry for a day or two. Once it is hard, let your kids paint it to their hearts’ content.
We borrowed the textured stampers from the Toybrary of Austin. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a library for TOYS! I love how borrowing instead of buying helps reduce clutter and waste in our home. Liza, the owner of the Toybrary is great about keeping the store full of educational open ended toys. If you’re anywhere near Austin, TX, I highly recommend considering a membership with them.
This Saturday 6/25, Allyson Downey of www.weeSpring.com will be at the Toybrary in the early afternoon. She’ll speak briefly and sign copies of her book “Here’s the Plan.” (Check out the website for details about the time!)
