Play dough is the one activity I had out every single day I taught preschool over the last few years. I would switch up the tools from time to time, and we’d make different colored play dough every month, but every single day my students would dig in and play. These spring play dough activities are simple, have wide boundaries so that children can create with them, not complete them. These activities should be invitations to play and create not an activity to accomplish. The play dough table was my favorite place to be because just like the sensory table this is where so much talking took place, which gave me a chance to use new vocabulary, to closely observe where each student was at and most importantly, connect!

And Easter Bunny Play Dough Treats – these aren’t a classroom activity but they are great for little Easter Treats to hand out to your students if you teach ( like I did) in a church school that celebrates Easter.
If your students love play dough, but you are short on time and need good tools, you can just buy as a set check out this set with cookie cutters, cutting wheels, and my student’s favorites the push tubes, it comes with a lot more than pictured in this photo. Find it here!
