Play Dough

What kid doesn’t love play dough?  Not only is it fun you can also use it for all sorts of fun learning activities.

  • Make snakes out of the dough to make letters, sight words and family names.
  • Create characters out of the dough and then tell a story.
  • Mix different colors.
  • Roll it out and use cookie cutters to cut fun shapes.  Then count, add and subtract these shapes.
  • Describe how it feels to build vocabulary.
  • Use it for play/pretend.  It’s amazing what kids can do with their imagination!
