Everyone loves PlayDoh in my house. Last night for family night we talked about impressions and fossils.
So, we had the kids search through the house that were different textures, or patterns.
They found a comb, coins, legos, a key, pipe cleaners, a dryer sheet, a chain, and bubble wrap.
(we may have hinted to ideas)
Then it was time to have at it!
We do family night after bath, so please excuse the wet hair and jammies. :)
This is a great fine motor activity. It also helps distinguish textural differences.
The kids all had a blast!
Even the one year old took a stab at it...literally!
This was just another fun way to use play doh.
We talked about ridges, grooves, indentations, and textures. They each learned new descriptive words.
We also had them predict what would happen on the other side if they pushed too hard or too soft.
Really nice and quiet activity. :)
