Playdough activity ideas for children and adults Playdough acorns, if you've foraged for these oak tree seeds this autumn and come up with a handful of empty cups, use brown playdough to replace the nuts and explore quantity, number sequencing and wildlife through squirrel roleplay. Roll small balls of dough and place them inside the crosshatched caps, gathering groups together so the squirrels can hide them away and revisit them over the winter when they're hungry.
