Ways with Playdough

 Here are some different things to add to playdough if you're tired of rollers and cookie cutters:
  • Patty pans, match sticks and plates for birthday parties
  • Wooden spoons, mixing bowls, measuring cups and spoons, baking trays and a cardboard box to act as an oven for cooking
  • Plates and knives and forks for pretend eating
  • Very small branches from shrubs, gumnuts, seed pods, leaves and plastic animals to re-create farm or jungle scenes
 Playdough is a great activity to boost language skills and work on developing those fine motor muscles. Do it outside or in the kitchen or bathroom if you don't like the mess!
