A to Z Guide to Play Dough Activities

We share a lot of play dough activities on this site, and we do even more here at home that don’t get published. Today I want to take a second to share a little bit about why we use play dough so frequently. I’ve also gathered a huge list of play dough activities…one for every letter of the alphabet in fact! Use it as a handy resource to find play dough activities that match your child’s interests or the current theme you are studying.

Why We Love Play Dough

  • It’s fun! Seriously, have you ever watched a group of children play with play dough? They become so engaged, often for extended periods of time.
  • It’s soothing. Often we put play dough out as a way to unwind a bit from a busy day.
  • Working with play dough strengthens fine motor muscles used for writing.
  • It encourages creativity as kids have the opportunity to shape and mold their own unique sculptures.
  • It’s versatile. Play dough can be used for so many purposes. You can create art, use it for science, model math problems, spell words, and more.
  • It’s inexpensive and it can be used over and over again.
