As you may have noticed we have a love for all things play dough here.
There are very few days when we don’t get out the play dough to use for school or just for fun. All of my kids love play dough, from my 11 year old to my 3 year old.
We’re thinking of new play dough activities to do all the time and we love trying out new play dough recipes.
Here is a grand list of all the play dough activities that I have so far. More are being added weekly, so be sure to mark this page and check back often to see our new play dough activities.
You may notice that some of the activities are pictured in sensory bins instead of play dough. That is because we use those play dough sets in the sensory bins as well.
I’ve just written about one of the activities that we did with them. We have used each of these sets many times in many different ways.
