A couple of weeks ago we used play dough for the first time this year. I was interested in seeing what this group of kids would do. We had rollers and a few other tools plus a few letter cookie cutters.
We used the tools to cut lines and letters.
We cut lines with a pizza cutter and then smoothed them out.
We experimented with the tools to see what would happen.
(Notice the stick that migrated from another activity.)
Sticks can be used to make wavy lines even more wavy.
Pounding is another fun part of play dough.
One of the tools made holes. One friend made lots of holes.
We even spelled words.
We rolled and folded. We flattened and pushed. We molded and stacked. We had a great time with the play dough.
(And the place mats kept everything a little neater.)
