For a long time, I did not allow Play doh into my house. It's too messy and I was worried about it getting into the carpet and getting everywhere.
Recently, one of my daughters brought home a handful of play doh. The two girls fought over that little piece of play doh and played with it like it was the best toy that ever gotten. Finally, I gave in and bought them one play doh kit.
That was the beginning of the end.
About 24 hours after buying that play doh kit, I had play doh ground into large portions of my carpet. Despite restricting them to only playing in one area, it was everywhere. All the play doh I had bought them had vanished, and the tiny bit that was left they were fighting over again.
Where did all that play doh go? How do you get play doh out of the carpet? And why did I break my rule and let them have play doh in the first place?
