Play Dough Pack – Recipes, Ideas + Invitations to Play

Welcome to the Play Dough Play Pack.

Included in this printable are 16 different recipes – including easy cook and no cook play dough recipes. There are also 24 ideas for Invitations to Play. They are aimed at Early Years Foundation Stage, so are perfect for school Nursery, Reception, and Year 1 classes. As well as great ideas for nurseries, child minders and parents.

This Play Dough Play Pack is a great teaching resource to have in the classroom to quickly set up fun practical activities. I created the Play Dough Play Pack as a quick reference for teachers when they are planning, or for parents to set up a little activities at home. I find it really hard sometimes to retain interesting ideas, so this is a great way to have them all in one place.

Play dough is an amazing resource and can develop many aspects of learning through play, such as developing fine motor skills, imagination, and creativity.

Many play dough mats and other prompts you may want to support these ideas can be downloaded from the Play Pack section. Hopefully it will save teachers and parents time, as well as making fun activities for children to be able to play and learn.



Printable learning resources for the classroom and home. Great for Early Years settings (Nursery + Reception) and Primary Schools.
