When it comes to having fun with playdough, toddlers don't need much. Just squishing the dough into a ball is enough to delight young children. Eventually, you can add some simple tools that you have around the house such as cups, spoons, or rolling pins and try some fun activities with the molding dough. But that doesn't mean that kids won't enjoy some of the tools and toys that have been specially designed for playdough games. Check out these picks for playdough games.
With Play-Doh in four vibrant colors and a host of tools that include stampers and play cutters, your child can create fun cakes that include decorations and tasty-looking desserts. Of course, you need to teach your child not to eat the dough unless you are using edible versions such as peanut butter playdough.
This set of four colored tubs provide hours of molding fun with all-natural ingredients. Each of the colors (red, blue, green, and yellow) are made from simple material: flour, water, salt, cream of tartar, soybean oil, food coloring and sodium benzoate (a food preservative). The playset include a rolling pin and cutout shapes to inspire little minds and finger.
A variety of molds let your child create a world of fun starring Dora and her friends. The set includes four cans of molding dough and a variety of tools, including a roller, play knife, 6 cutters and mold. This playdough set is especially good for creating a story scene that helps build your child's language skills.
This set, too, is a great for creating a narrative story with your child to help foster language development. Your child can create two different cars from the movie, adding accessories and fixing them up to help them win the "big race." The set includes molds for the cars, special backdrops, gas tank presser and plunger, and tools for the cars along with four cans of PLAY-DOH. The theme is sure to entice car lovers, especially boys who may not be naturally interested in creative games like playdough.
