Here is a fun idea for the playdough table.....chocolate doughnuts!!
Set up your doughnut shop-
I added plastic plates with drawings of doughnuts, glitter, sequins, sparkly shapes and 100's and 1000's. I also added paper bags and playdough of course.
The children made the chocolate doughnuts and added the various sprinkles. Some doughnuts went into the bags, others were counted on plates and some were sold to friends at the shop. This is such a simple activity but also is a great fine motor activity, helps children with counting and number recognition, promotes creative play and language and helps reinforce the 'circle' shape.
Mountains of doughnuts were made!!
Mountains of glitter was used!!
...... And lots of fun was had.
