Play Dough Activities

  1. 1 Pancakes

    How many different play dough pancakes can you make? Fat ones, flat ones, big, small, with designs, etc.  Read Pancakes for Breakfast by Tomie dePaola.

  2. 2 Practice Cutting

    Play dough is the perfect medium to practice making those first snips.

  3. 3 Tracing

    Draw simple shapes. Children roll play dough into long pieces and “trace” the shapes.

  4. 4 Make It

    Try out different play dough recipes – cooked versions, uncooked versions and do an experiment.  Let the children vote on their favorite dough recipe.

  5. 5 Play Dough Counting

    Instruct each child to use their play dough to make a ball or a flat pancake.  Provide small add-ons such as buttons or popsicle sticks. Say a number and children add that many items to their play dough shape.
