My boy came to me the other and requested being allowed to make things with big sister's clay....."you know, the kind you put in the oven and then you can keep!" He's not usually allowed to create with that clay and I pull out playdough or something else for him, but I realized he's getting so grown up! We can bake with clay now!
I asked him what he wanted to make and he said "stuff for my guys, like food." So now his G.I. Joes have some oranges, ice cream cone, and a really cool blue birthday cake with a candle on top. They love them!
