    Hiya all,

    I'm buying DD a table and chair for Xmas and would like to use it namely for arts and crafts. To this end I'd like to get her some play doh and some cutters etc to use with it. Can anyone suggest a set that would be suitable for an 18mth old just getting to grips with what play doh is all about? There seems to be SO many sets available I'm a bit overwhelmed.

    So I thought I'd ask the experts ;)

    the boys havent had play doh yet but are getting some for christmas - they will be 23 months. I just bought two tubs about £1.50 each - they will just get stuck in no doubt - I will get more adventurous depending on if they like it and how much mess it makes!!!

    Yeah must admit I'm a bit concerned that she might think its for eating but im hoping she won't and that it's something nice that we'll be able to explore together x

    Hadn't thought of that - Poundland have probably got some bits we could use to cut and roll the play doh. Thanks Hun :)

    It's simple enough to make for sure - you can do it in the microwave so I'm told and I'd prefer to make my own really but I'm not sure I'll have the time or the patience to do so once baby arrives! :-S

    I'm sure it's easy enough but I'd need to buy the ingredients and work out how to measure a 'cup'. I'm useless in the kitchen!! Lol

    We make the play dough and just use cookie cutters, spoons and forks.
