Play Dough Activities for Preschoolers

  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. Practice Cutting

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

  3. Tracing

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

  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. 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.
