PLAY-DOH - Shape a Colourful Community

When young, I used to play with Play-Doh. Now, my school going kids love to play with Play-Doh too. Play-Doh is good to spur imagination and creativity among children.

Mini Play-Doh sets

Last Saturday, we had a fun time playing with Play-Doh. We created something which represents Malaysia. As we love to eat, we thought of FOOD.

Malaysian Satay
One of Malaysian favourite is Satay. Shaping the Play-Doh was FUN ! The kids laughed their heart away while enjoying with their creations. Since there is no brown colour, the kids simply mix yellow, orange and black to create one.

Malaysian Nasi Lemak
The other Malaysian favourite food is Nasi Lemak. To get the lighter brown, they mixed their own colour again, using lesser black colour. While shaping their creations, the kids even said they were hungry looking at the food. LOL!

Finally, we decided to add durian too. Since Malaysia is also known for durian,  we can't give this King of fruit a missed. My boy insisted to make a Proboscis Monkey too as he said it is also found in Malaysia.

Come and Experience the First-Ever PLAY-DOH Month Celebration !

Let Malaysia's Colourful Community inspire your kids to create their best PLAY-DOH sculptures and be part of The Malaysia Book of Records attempt !

As you create and re-create, you also get the chance to participate in The Malaysia Book of Records attempt for the most PLAY- DOH sculptures created in a single day on September 26 ( Saturday) and a successful attempt will see your PLAY-DOH creations on display for all Malaysians to admire, with the most creative sculptures winning exciting PLAY-DOH prizes !

You and your kids can get started to "Shape a Community" with some of these tips:
Step 1 : Work as a team with your kids to imagine what everyone in the family think will best and most positively represent Malaysia. You can even draw our ideas out first using colourful marker pens colour pencils or crayons.
Step 2 : Materialise your idea using PLAY-DOH compound. Do experiment and encourage each other as you go along. You can combine the different colours and mix them well with fingers until they become a different colour, and use any other items you have ready in the house to press patterns and make various shapes with the compound.
Step 3 : Watch as you and your children transition your flat design into a colourful 3D Malaysia-inspired masterpiece creation !
