From totems to peas, droplet shaped mice, cubes stacked in towers or morphed into dice, Hasbo's Play-Doh is a perfect catalyst for the fizz & spark of imagination.   As a child I'd have models sometimes intentionally hardening on the windowsill, baked by an energised sun and even now, just a few (*cough) years later I sit with a tub on the shelf next to me, a prehensile chewy akin to the storm of fidget toys making the list of aids supporting concentration, focus and aiming to soothe the furrows of anxiety. A small ball of this * 'vanilla-like fragrance'd putty plays happily in my left hand as the right types a touch more thoughtfully!
On the website Play-Doh has been used exclusively in the Incy Wincy Spider activity and Hasbro GB have their own gallery of awesome things to make.  Recreate questions that suppose a tale, 'Who visited the bird table this morning?' 'What will the weather be like tomorrow?' 'How tall is a giraffe's neck, how long are its legs?'  'Where are the sprinkles for the birthday cake?'  pave the way for a storyboard of modelling that helps to cement some time together.

A dictionary can also be useful for those blank-moments, select a page number between x and x, take a noun and a verb and combine.  Plan a canvas or frame for the Play-Doh activity, be it a sheet of paper, tied twigs or a lazy susan and photograph the various stages of the project's development.
