Parents and children gathered at the Stettler Library for a Plushie Picnic, stuffed animal friends in tow, on Aug. 20 as part of the library’s summer program.

The picnic took place in the activity annex area off to the side of the library and, as part of the picnic, participants made play-doh “food” for the event.

The home-made, nontoxic play-doh was made by library activity coordinator Darlene Philpot.

She coloured the different doughs with various kitchen foods to give them food odours. Pink dough blobs smelled like strawberries while the brown blobs smelled like chocolate.

Children made the types of food based on the laminated sheets they received. Some had barbecues, while others had ice cream cones, so the picnic was full of berries and triple-scoop ice cream, hamburgers, hotdogs and sausages.

While some of the participants chose to sample the harmless play-doh, the saltiness of the non-toxic treat was enough to put off most people.
