Kids Coop - Playdough fun

Its time for Kids Coop. Please link up your kids activity posts and check out what other people have linked as well. This week I'm linking the following:
Goblin has really got into playdough recently. I love whipping up a batch in a spare moment and seeing what he'll do with it. We use the Nurturestore recipe and add what ever food colouring and essential oils we fancy. 
So I gave Goblin a ball of blue playdough, some flat marbles, straws of various lengths and some cocktail sticks. Then I sat back to see what he'd do. 
First he practiced his fine motor skills by poking straws into the playdough and then feeding cocktail sticks into the straws.
And then he told me he wanted to make an octopus. I have no idea where that came from but I loved that his imagination took him there.
He made a six legged octopus which gave us a great little learning opportunity as I handed him two more straws and explained that octopuses have eight legs. I think his octopus is very cute.
And now to the linky
