Play-Doh Cupcake Wars
Children of all ages will enjoy participating in this fun twist to manipulating Play-Doh. We all love and know the importance of family game nights, but sometimes it can be difficult to find a family game that appeals to a wide variety of ages. This is a great one that does just that. Based loosely on the popular show Cupcake Wars, my kids came up with this fun activity which actively engaged the entire family. In the end, the cupcake submissions all received accolades for the qualities that made them standouts. This activity is wonderful for developing fine motor skills and a surprisingly fun activity for family game nights. You will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of detail and creativity that is expressed even by those that you least expect it from.
