Playdough activity ideas for children and adults Frozen playdough.. brrrrr, well not necessarily so cold! If you're curious enough to combine real frozen ice chips with a mound of playdough or put some in the freezer then the result will be a gloriously tactile experience! We took a drier, slightly warmer and arguably less interesting route, enjoying the dough with rollers, cutters, characters, bricks and a fragrance that reminds us of winter!

There are many other resources you can introduce to a chilly Frozen themed activity such as snowflake confetti, artificial snow, gems and chunks of clear smooth acrylic. We also included a selection of blue and white reusable ice cubes that have a soft, pliable outer shell and are filled with sterile water. They proved excellent at showing the condition of being frozen and thawe, making a sloshy sound and were safe enough to handle without the worry of 'skin sticking' or spilling!

Develop children's play further with LED ice cubes that stack, hold them together with pieces of play dough and build around them with white lego bricks, creating walls, gateways, and castles. Cover these constructions with playdough and then decorate the surface with glittery sequins.

Another nice activity, is to use Disney's Frozen colouring pictures Elsa in her coronation dress and Anna in her gown. Colour in the picture with pencils then use an empty laminated pouch as a tracing sheet. Secure this on top of the coloured picture with a paper clip at each corner. Use dough and  craft gems to create personalised designs and draw in the finer details with chalk pens. Photograph the artwork and add to a gallery.
