Playdough activity ideas for children and adults Lego playdough, a combination of two resources that opens up a world of creative possibilities! Take large and small bricks and press any of their sides into the surface of playdough and see what patterns can be achieved. Shape character figures by inserting bricks and building a host of regular and seasonal personalities! Take photos of these creations and print the artwork to decorate and personalise your Christmas/ Yule greeting cards and maybe even a label for a Halloween trick or treat gift bag.

These activities are great for supporting young children's fine motor skills as they practice their hand to eye coordination when picking up and positioning the lego bricks, they encourage the use of  mathematical and positional language - large, small, in front behind and aside from the formal recognition of learning, it's just thoroughly enjoyable!
