Playdough is one of the favourite boredom busters in our house. It’s so easy to put an activity together by getting the playdough out with a rolling pin and a few shape cutters.
Playdough mats are another fun way to let children explore their creativity. These “Make a face” playdough mats were an instant success with my 3 year old and inspired lots of learning while we discussed facial features, different genders, skin tones and hair types. We also talked about emotions by making a happy face, sad face, etc.
