- Playdough (home made or store bought)
- Plastic safety scissor
With this activity I just let little A hold the scissor the way he wanted and allowing him to poke,cut and stab the playdough.
Later on I demonstrated the proper way of holding the scissor.(thumb in the top loop and index finger in the bottom loop.Using the scissors was a challenge for little A.He kept turning his hand over and he had a really hard time keeping his thumb on top while cutting, but got better the more we practiced.
He was amazed by his ability to cut the Play-doh into multiple pieces. I would highly recommend this activity for other tots.We will definitely be doing this again soon though.
When he’s done with his cutting skills. He had a better idea.So we moved from cutting into baking.
I didn’t argue.
I’m glad he was so enthralled with playing. He said that he wanted to bake a cake with sprinkles.
I always try to enrich the pretend play with new information, props and role play ideas.
We love, love, love to play with play dough, do you?
A simple play…
Playdough.Wooden Kitchen Utensil. and Scissor.
Play dough normally is a wonderful sensory activity in itself, but the added materials makes it more fun for little A.
