Ideas For Using Play Dough With Your Child:
While play dough is known for being a super fun kid’s activity, it can also be a very educational tool as well! Try incorporating play dough into your lesson plans using some of the following activities:
- Use Number Mats 1-10 or Ten Frame Number Mats to practice number identification and one to one correspondence. (These two activities are also adorable play doh valentine ideas!)
- Have your child use play dough to work on letter formation. They can use their finger to trace letters into the dough, or they can form the letter using the play dough. Once they master making individual letters, they can try to make their whole name out of play dough.
- Practicing shape identification and formation using play dough. You can start with 2D shapes and then move on to creating 3D shapes.
- Create patterns with your play dough. You can start by making small balls of different color play dough and create a simple A/B pattern, and get more complex as you go.
- Explore textures with your play dough. Use objects with smooth and rough textures to make indentations into the play dough.
- Try this firefighter play dough printable set or this Valentine’s Day themed set to give your child some characters to play with.
