"P" is for popcorn, plate, plus (sign/addition), pop/soda can, Pocahontas, princesses, pumpkin, puzzle, picture, pond, park, piano, pregnant, penny, pencil/pen, pig, parrot, pit, pin, puppy, pees, potato, Pluto Dog (Mickey's friend), pink, purple and a peg, puppet. And "p" is for a puffin, polar bear, panda, and a penguin. (Also, not included a plum and pizza.)
"P" is also for pom-poms and pincer grip. So, we made this DIY letter P from bottle caps (simply glue caps with a glue gun to the piece of a recycled card box). I then offered Adrian to fill each cap with different color pom poms using tongs while remembering the proper tracing direction.

We finally mastered our 🏡 home-made play dough recipe and now we are experimenting with scented dough batches! Here, we are using non-toxic botanical 100% organic juice to color our play dough. We also added cinnamon and 🍫chocolate to our brown dough and 💛turmeric spice to our yellow batch.
We are using these wooden dough tools
We used the brown dough to make a nest ~ see here Invitation To 🌾🌿 Create a Nest • 🐦Bird Unit Study.
