This Christmas season, Buddy and I decorated play doh Christmas trees with pony beads. I got the idea from Child Care Land’s blog, and Buddy loved it! But I had other things to blog about in December, so I never got a chance to blog about this activity.
Since Buddy loved it so much, I wanted to take the idea and adapt it to something besides a Christmas tree. Since Buddy is interested in dinosaurs, I decided to use dinosaur cookie cutters and decorate them with spots. This could easily be done with any shape though – other animals or even letters and numbers. (These are the cookie cutters that I have and they’re great! affiliate link)
Then Buddy used the pony beads to give his dinos spots. He had a great time squishing the beads into the playdoh!
Buddy loved having a new, fun way to play with playdoh. I’m sure we’ll do this again soon.
Do you have other fun and easy play doh ideas? Please share in the comments.
