Tom and Lily were both home from school ill on Friday. Tom had also been home the day before, so by Friday afternoon he was feeling much better. Lily wasn't as ill as Tom, but she wasn't well enough to go to school. By the Friday afternoon, though, they were both well enough to need some quiet entertainment, so I made a few batches of homemade play dough and let the Podlings loose on it. It proved to be an immensely popular choice, with it keeping them all happy until tea time. They never seem to tire of play dough. It has been one of my fall back activities for them for years and it never gets old.

I was particularly impressed with Tom's beach, with its fish, pebbles and real shells.
