Play Dough Activities

Play dough is a great tool to develop and strengthen fine motor skills! Here are some ideas to learn through play:

  • Roll out the dough; these rolling pins even have fun patterns!
  • Add cookie cutters for pretend play! Kids can make “cookies” or use the cut out characters and tell stories!
  • Alphabet stamps: One of my favorite activities for older children is to use ABC stamps to push into the dough, leaving behind a letter imprint. Kids can write their name, practice sight words, or learn Easter terms.
