Sharing is caring!

Today, I want to share some of the best playdough recipes and playdough activities with you.

This weekend we have a little one coming to visit and one of the things she wants to do is make homemade playdough. Easy enough! After we make our own playdough she will have hours of fun getting creative as we make some of her favorite creations.

Since it is spring, we will also be doing some fun spring activities because the weather will be a bit warmer.

Benefits of Playdough

Besides providing hours of fun for children, there are a lot of benefits of playdough.

  • It helps develop fine motor skills.
  • It is a quiet and calming activity for children.
  • Helps with hand-eye coordination.
  • Let's children explore with creativity.
  • Encourages playtime and imagination.
  • Increases curiosity which can turn into knowledge.
