Since play dough is a part of our daily lives, I thought it would be great to get a list of good fall play dough activities and recipes all in one place.We often use play dough in our learning time, but it’s always great for play time!
Play dough is fantastic for building fine-motor skills, a great way to experience different textures, colors and especially different smells.
Now, Spring will always hold it’s place as my favorite season, but Fall comes in at a VERY close 2nd place. I love the freshness of Spring and the green beauty that unfolds after the dreariness of winter. But Fall is a season of texture, vibrant colors, and amazing smells. Kind of like play dough!
I’ve searched the internet for the best of the best of fall play dough activities and recipes and I’ve got them all here to share with you!
