More Play Dough Ideas

There are so many fun activities you can do with playdough!  Remember our previous posts, Playdough and stencils and last years It’s Playtime with Playdough.  Our older kids loved play dough when they were younger (and have since moved on to learning with legos).  Meanwhile, the playdoh fun is having a rebirth with our youngest daughter.  She is just beginning to discover the fun of squishing and creating.  Thanks to all the participants in recent week’s of It’s Playtime – you are giving us some great activity ideas.

Re-use old dried out playdough with the help of a water spray bottle and your eager kiddos.

Pretending is a blast with play doh, especially making yummy “foods” like this pretend icecream.

Have an older child who could use more structured play?  How about have them “re-create” toys or objects, like these rubber duckies, from around the house.

Don’t let your kids throw playdough?  I don’t either, but this experiment – play doh catapulting – might just convince us to let it fly!

Don’t have playdoh or are a gluten-free family?  Playing with Oobleck is a lot of fun too!

Do you want to do something different with your play dough time and not know where to start?  There are tons of ideas of kitchen utensils that are perfect for playdough.

I love the idea of just setting up the playdough and walking away for your kids to discover an “invitation to play” – like this tea party theme.
