Today we’re featuring posts from the Discover & Explore fall theme. I love all things fall, so selecting posts to share today was super tough for me!
Play dough is always readily available around here. When you combine it with the scents of fall, I can’t resist sitting down and playing either. These creative ideas for fall themed play caught my eye! Don’t they look like so much fun?

The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book
Want more great play dough ideas and inspiration? I can’t say enough about The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book written by Cathy James of NurtureStore. It has quickly become a handy reference guide for me regarding all things play dough. The book contains:
- all the recipes you need for the activities in the book including non-cook and cooked play dough, gluten-free dough, salt dough, modelling dough, and real bread.
- ideas for 52 weeks of loose parts play, in a printable poster format
- a whole year of play dough activities, arranged seasonally. There’s an idea for every week of the year including sensory and imaginary play, storytelling, art ideas, small worlds, math activities, reading and writing ideas.
