|Play Dough Patterns|
We have been using the play dough that we made a while back and after playing with it, I don't know if I will ever buy another canister of the "factory made" stuff.

To go along with our play dough patterns I made sure we read another ocean animal book. Getting the little guy to read an ocean book is very easy! We read one that we bought at the aquarium last year, but read quit often at night. It is called Ocean Wonders by Dorothea DePrisco Wang and illustrated by Daniel J. Mahoney.
This is a sparkly board book with pages that slide open. Each page that slides displays an ocean animal decorated with foil accents. Before opening the slide there is a clue given and you can guess what animal is hiding. My three year old loves the sliding pages and it is just the right length that we can read it over and over again! I love that the back of each slide has a picture. This book has most of our favorite ocean animals like sharks, whales, and jellyfish. I wonder when the obsession with the ocean animals will end!
