Ode to Play-Doh

The Lord blessed us with imaginations,
And Hasbro gave us Play-Doh
With which to build our creations:

A penguin, a dolphin, a turtle (with hair!),
A star, a slide, a bee, and a cake.
But more importantly, a trap, used to ensnare,
All those snakes that are so easy to make.

The quiet that comes from a can of that stuff
Is like a chorus of angels singing...silently.
Even the little boy, normally so tough,
Plays with his sister a little less violently.

So on this cold wintry day, Play-Doh you are "da bomb".
And I want to thank you so sincerely,
For you make everyone happy, most especially the mom!

That was the most beautiful *Sniff* poem I've ever heard! (In fact, I think it's the only one I've ever heard dedicated to playdoh! :) Nice work Lis! It seriously was excellent!

Wow, I'm very impressed by the poetry. Play doh has been keeping Jackson quiet these past couple of days. Does Tyler try to eat it? Hayden thinks it's food, just like he thinks everything is food...

I am glad someone's kids will play with it. Kyle last just enough time to mix all the colors. Then he is ready for another puzzle.

I think you should send that to the Play Doh Company and include the pictures!
