December advent calendar is all planned out! :) our families figured out dates at a reasonable time this year, and appointments and school schedules are pretty iron clad already. So here it is! My kids made themselves Christmas mail boxes last year. Every day of advent they get a picture and bible verse from the Christmas story to tape to their window. I also include some kind of Christmas sweet, and then there’s the special activity for the day! Monday-Friday are Christmas craft days, and Saturdays and Sunday’s are family time events. Circled days are school days, so I kept the crafts more brainless since the kindergarten kid is pretty zonked. Painting doesn’t require much thought processing for him and he loves it! Appointment days are also easy things like scratch art, or colouring books. Some activities with the family are free, and some are not. But it evens out over the month. We don’t spend a whole lot of money on their Christmas gifts. We find something they will like at a reasonable price, and that-is-that. So this enables us to add more Christmas to the rest of the month! #christmasideas #familychristmas #craftideas #christmascrafts #adventidea

Play Doug vs. Plasticine
Play Doug is soft, and therefore is very easily manipulated. This is great for younger children with lacking fine motor skills. But overall, i do not like play dough when placed in conjunction with Plasticine clay.
Play Doug dries out (with cracks), while plasticine can be played with over and over...even if leftout on the dinning table over night.
With it's change of physical state due to temperature changes (more malleable when warmed in hands), children are introduced to the nature of the physical world, where there are changes of state, and that certain manipulations must take place inorder to achieve other desired matters. The process of warming up the needed pieces of plasticine, teaches pacients, concentration, and encourages tenderness and care towards the medium.
It is easier to create miniature elements out of tiny pieces (than with play dough), which in result will look much more precise to the child's original vision. This encourages the development of fine motor skills as well as allowing the child to take pride in their work.
Another element unique to plasticine but not shared with play dough is that most plasticine clays can be baked in the over to create toys and mini sculptures that can be saved and cherished for a life time.
