50 Playdough Activities for Children

At my house, we really love playdough.  It’s just such a fun material to use and it is so open ended.  You can sculpt, squish, and stretch it! You can make it scented, colored, or edible!  It’s extremely versatile. There are endless playdough activities to choose from when you want to give your time some creative play time.

Apparently my family aren’t the only ones enamored with this fun sensory dough because September 16th is National Playdough Day! To help you celebrate, I decided to create a round up of fun ways to use it!
