Make a letter
Use the playdoh to form the letters of their name.
Use sight word mats to help your child practice sight words at the same time.
Clean up tips
Put newspaper on the table before using playdoh. Then you can throw it away when finished.
Sweep before letting your children up, then sweep again. I do NOT want playdoh tracked in our cream carpet so I have to be paranoid about that. I sweep any random crumbs that are on the floor, then any playdoh that has attached itself to my children.
Playdoh is great because it allows children to practice their fine motor skills, and it engages their creativitiy. I usually only do one learning activity first, then give them time for free exploration.
How else do you use playdoh to teach your children? Leave a comment below.
