Cutting Playdough

Did you know that cutting playdough is easier than cutting paper?  If you have a young child who is developing the coordination necessary to cut with scissors, have them cut playdough first. Playdough is also a wonderful tool for developing skills necessary to roll out dough, use cookie cutters and cut with a butter knife.


Wanting to add a little spice to your playdough?  Try Chestnut Grove’s Pumpkin Spice Playdough recipe.  Want more of a sensorial experience?  Try TinkerLab’s Cloud Dough among other sensorial dough-like recipes.  Want to introduce measuring to your child?  Teach Preschool has a great Measuring Playdough Inchworms activity.
