National Play Doh Day is right around the corner! To celebrate, break out the tubes and get ready to have some fun. The best thing about Play Doh is its versatility. Wonder what to do with play doh? You can play with Play Doh every single day and have a different adventure each time. It is the perfect toy to nurture your children’s creativity.
What To Do With Play Doh
Here are some fun new ways that your family can enjoy National Play Doh Day.
Kids love to use their imagination to create a game. Whether it is playing house or pretending to be a veterinarian, Play Doh can be incorporated into the game to really bring it to life. If your child is pretending to help sick animals, you can use Play Doh to create a whole menagerie of new patients. If your kids are running a pretend restaurant, Play Doh can be the perfect ingredient to make any dish come to life. Whatever your kids are imagining, Play Doh lets them create it.
“Guess What I Am Making” is another fun way to use Play Doh. The game can be adapted to fit any age range. There are so many ways to play, so your family can make the game your own. You might create categories such as colors, so during the green round whatever the contestant makes has to be green. Then, you could give verbal hints or move the Play Doh creation to mimic whatever it is, much like charades. You can even make Play Doh coins to award whoever guesses correctly and decide that the first person to collect 10 coins wins. No matter how you play it, everyone is sure to have a great time.
Using Play Doh for learning can be just as fun as it is educational. For young children, you can use the Play Doh to practice letters, numbers, shapes and colors. Instead of just reciting the alphabet together, you can create it with your own hands. The education benefits are not just for little ones either. Believe it or not, Play Doh can even be used as a study aid. Studying for a spelling test or solving a math problem can be more fun when Play Doh is used to shape the answer. The “Guess What I Am Making” game can even be adapted to accommodate what your child is studying. Making study time into a game can help keep your child interested in learning, which is a wonderful quality to have.
