Reinventing Play Dough

Here are some fresh ideas on an old favorite.

  • Make homemade playdough and let your child add the color and knead it.
  • Add a rolling pin, potato masher, cookie cutters, butter knives, and any other fun, real-life kitchen items that will make unique patterns in the dough.
  • Enhance play with spices! Pull out your cinnamon, turmeric, cocoa, rosemary, and mustard (Helpful tip! Put a strip of tape over the top so only a few holes are open). Now, let your child explore the different scents as they change the play dough and the entire sensory experience.
  • Inspire mosaic art by offering popcorn seeds, macaroni noodles, cheerios, nuts, or bolts, etc for the children to create patterns and designs.
