Ready, Go, Play-Doh Contest!

When I was kid, I loved playing with Play-Doh. There’s just no limit to the creativity one can produce with a few chunks of Play-Doh.

If you stopped by on Wednesday, you saw that my Zander loves Play-Doh as much as I did at his age. He’ll sit for hours and you can just see the wheels in his head churning as he comes up with a fun new idea to make next. His favorite items to create, (aside from Mr. Bean), are food items. He’ll make tasty burgers and fries, and he’ll serve them up to us on Lucy’s pretend-play kitchen dishes.

How fun for us that Play-Doh has created a “Ready, Go Play-Doh” contest that embraces the idea of creating food. Our kids can come up with their own Play-Doh “food” creations for a chance to win a makeover of both their playroom and their school’s playroom.

I can guarantee Zander will be entering. He’s been working hard today at perfecting his food creations so that I can take a picture of them. (He’s a perfectionist and won’t let me take a picture until it’s just right!)

Your kids can enter too! Just visit to enter by uploading a photo of your child’s food-inspired Play-Doh creation along with the “recipe” to make it.

The grand prize winner of the “Ready, Go Play-Doh” contest will win $10,000: $5,000 for a playroom makeover as well as a $5,000 “Doh-nation” to their child’s school.

Contest entries will be accepted through September 30, 2009, so don’t delay!

On October 15, 2009, the ten finalists will be posted on and the public will vote on who receives the $10,000 prize! The website will also feature a gallery of entries, so even if you don’t win, everyone can see your child’s creation!

This is such a fun contest, and such a great way for your kids to spend some creative indoor play time. Pull out the Play-Doh, grab your camera, and enter today!

Thanks to MomCentral for alerting me about the contest and allowing me to spread the news to you!
