Today I want to share a super simple play dough activity perfect for developing fine motor skills with toddlers and preschoolers. But first, I want to share a little story about how this activity came about.
Today I’d like to share how you can make magic play dough! This is a great little gift to give your students on the first day of school.
This week, we made some play dough for sensory play! As a teacher, I’ve had to make my own fair share of play dough. I’ve always just followed the recipe on the back of the Cream of Tartar tin. Once I discovered this fantastic no-cook play dough recipe on Pinterest, I never went back!
If you’re on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen these amazing latch boards for toddlers. They look like so much fun but they can be incredibly expensive – I saw one for $400! Today I’d like to share a simple DIY latch board that you can make quite cheaply!
We have been working hard to improve our learning space at home. I’ve been loving all things Montessori! Recently, I went to see the I am Montessori learning space in Brisbane and fell in love. There were so many great ideas there. I was so impressed to see how engaged my 14 month old was in the space. She loved the coin box so we decided to make our own DIY version!
