Quick and easy things to do with playdough

Using handmade playdough or previously stashed Play-Doh tubs you can

  • empty a purse or pocket and offer up any combination of coins for printing patterns on the surface of dough, stacking them using dough as glue & role playing shops.
  • fill a dish with dry pasta & spaghetti to collage rolled sheets or mounds of dough
  • raid the kitchen drawer for mashers & squashers! 
  • use a sheet of paper as the sky and invite it to be filled eg. with clouds, birds, planes, mountain horizons, the sun and rain drops ..  
  • Print and laminate any of the sheets available across the site and store them in a folder eg. cobwebs, a plantpot, bird nest or a sandy seabed floor
