If you’ve been around here even a couple times, you should know by now that I am all about interactive, sensory-stimulating, inquisitive activities. (What a mouthful!) This interactive farm play dough pack I am going to share with you today takes that to an 15 on a scale of 1-10!
After creating this farm scenery play dough kit and activity pack, I had hours (yes, hours) of peace and occupied children in my house! My kindergartener begged me to make other sets. Her wish is my command! (At least in this case…)
My almost 3 year-old, who hasn’t gotten of the talking thing yet, started pointing to the different animals saying their names (in her language) and even made sheep, cow, and horse sounds! VICTORY!!!
The oohing and aahhing went on all night.
So what is so special about this activity pack?
You can use yummy-smelling play dough. (Ours was lemongrass.)
It starts conversations and imagination.
And that’s just the beginning.
Fun tasks like “Put the pigs inside the barn.” Inquiry-based tasks like, “Which animals are shorter than the barn door?” Counting tasks such as, “How many lambs do the sheep have?”
There is also a silly dinosaur included, so that kids can talk about what doesn’t belong on the farm.
The fun doesn’t stop with the play dough set. There are also patterning mats to practice ABAB, AABB, and ABBA, along with an independent discovery mat for students to create their own patterns.
