Tic♥Tac♥Dough Review and Giveaway!

Back to school lists seem to grow every year. This year one of the requested supplies for many preschool and kindergarten classes is playing dough. Playing dough improves fine motor skills, increases imaginative play, and is great for children of all ages.

If you’ve been reading 4BabyAndMom for awhile, you know that I love Etsy sellers. I appreciate a fine product created by hand from parents and skilled crafters. I love creating a buzz about a fun or exciting Etsy company any time I can. (If you missed the ‘a picket fence life’ review, be sure to click HERE & check it out!)

While searching for more traditional back to school products to review and give away during our bash, I happened to stumble upon the Etsy company called Tic♥Tac♥Dough.Tic♥Tac♥Dough was created by a work-at-home mom of two, with natural ingredients, and plenty of love! It is available in two different formulas, including gluten free, and many different scents and colors, which makes play time great for kids of all ages.

Recently, we were able to review a 6oz. tub of Sweet Orange scented Tic♥Tac♥Dough and I can tell you that both of the kids absolutely loved it! (My horrible mommy confession is that even though Abbigaile’s artsy personality would enjoy it, she’s only played with playing dough a handful of times before we received our sample.)

The first day we received our tub of Tic♥Tac♥Dough, Abbie played with it for about two hours straight! She made houses, and people, and flowers. She rolled it, and flattened it, and used the included duck shaped cutter to make “duckies” out of dough. She had such a blast! The next day, Alex got to play too, and the two of them shared the tub very well. I was impressed that the quantity of the dough was enough for both of them to play together very well. There was no bickering over who had more, or who didn’t have enough… and they laughed, giggled, pounded, and rolled together.

Want it?
Visit our friends at Tic♥Tac♥Dough and check out their large selection of colors and packages. Order one tub, or a three month subscription, where you pick the colors, and your child gets one fresh, new tub in the mail every month!

Win it!
Our friends at Tic♥Tac♥Dough have offered one lucky winner their chance to win TWO tubs of playing dough, plus a fun shape cutter!
