Yep, I’m blogging about play dough again!
I am collecting quite a few blog posts about play dough ideas and activities. It’s a good thing I like playing with dough as much as my big boy does.
The small boy is even starting to take some interest in the activity. He’s had a few tastes but he’s generally more interested in squishing it between his fingers and running off and hiding bits all over the house!
Morgan likes something a bit more exciting than a quick squish and run, so yesterday I collected a variety of things to make patterns in the play dough – shells, glass pebbles, a few different seed pods and gum nuts, and a selection of little plastic threading bits.
First we rolled out the play dough into big flat slabs, then we experimented with patterns and prints.
There was lots of classification and grouping going on, as well as a beginning understanding of repeating patterns…. and it all looked so pretty too!
