One of my favorite play ideas for February has been making Doily Impressions! We rolled out our Rose-scented ZDough and then pressed crocheted doilies into it to pick up all of the lovely pattern and texture! If you have some old doilies stashed in a drawer somewhere use those (but please, not great grandma's heirlooms! I picked up a few doilies at the craft store for a dollar.) Just use a rolling pin to create the impression. Your little ones can experiment with rolling harder or softer and using different doilies with different patterns. Peel up the doily and use cookie cutters to make patterned "cookies" or just different shapes! It makes for fun open-ended play and is a great way to investigate texture.
