After our duck pond math and sensory play activities we just had to put together a play dough invitation. The girls enjoyed setting up their own individual duck ponds, and the invitation inspired a lot of pretend play and story telling.

We were able to reuse the materials we had gathered for the duck pond sensory play activity, so aside from making a quick batch of play dough this was very easy to set up. We used:
- Play dough made from a recipe in The Homemade Play Dough Recipe Book and Wilton Icing Colors
- Rubber ducks
- Drift wood pieces
- Aquarium gravel
- Glass gems
- Small rocks
- Small aquarium plants
As the girls created their ponds I loved sitting back and listening to the stories they were telling. Here in this picture Lovey created a “nest” using the aquarium gravel and the duck in the middle is sitting on and protecting it’s egg (which she made out of a rock).
Soon all of the ducks were visiting and waiting to welcome the new baby duckling.
This is a great play dough invitation to set up at home or school during spring or a pond theme. For more play dough inspiration, you can find all of our play dough invitations here.
