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.
