Three Ways with Playdough

Here are three invitations to your child to try something new with the playdough.

Get Cutting!  Cutting playdough is a wonderful activity for children in that stage of learning to use scissors and wanting to cut everything.  Cutting playdough also provides a lot more sensory feedback than cutting paper.

Roll and Count! This is a great way to get little fingers rolling balls, counting and practising one-to-one correspondence (one-to-one correspondence is the mathematical skills of counting one number name for each object)

Add natural materials.  I added leaves and sticks, but you could also include rocks and/or shells.

The sticks and leaves inspired my 4 y.o. to create a garden.
