Playdough activity ideas for children and adults Daffodil playdough activities are a lovely, seasonal way to share the name of a springtime flower and to identify the different parts it has. Explore petals, trumpets, stalks, long narrow leaves and the colours yellow, orange, white and green.  Supply your own models for inspiration and unique replication by planting bulbs in October, buying artificial blooms at any time of the year or sourcing a bunch of freshly picked heads from a local store or, with permission, a garden!

Form each trumpet cone by curling it around and joining the straight edges together.

Alternatively use the outline templates to cut from coloured card or craft foam.
