#TheOrdinaryMoments – Peace With Play-Dough

J is almost ten, yet he still enjoys rolling, moulding and modelling play-dough, as for his sister – she cannot get enough of it! Modelling and sculpting dough is such an incredibly, therapeutic activity which seems to bring peace to our household. Should we have had a rough day or perhaps one of the kids may be feeling slightly ’emosh’, play-dough seems to be the perfect solution.…
