Play dough is such a good material to use in pretend play. With a child’s imagination play dough can be turned into just about anything. It adds a extra sensory dimension into their play and really it’s not too messy to tidy up, so you can use it in the dolls house, play kitchen, home corner, train set, garden… wherever!
This week my girls have been having a fabulous fun time using play dough to make pizzas. Yesterday Janet Lansbury wrote that play is enough and I thought I’d show you how this works in our house. A simple batch of play dough plus a few added extras turns into hours of play with math, science, language and social skills incorporated naturally as part of the children’s play.
