I am excited to play with playdough! Each week feel free to send your child with their playdough toys, if you have any. I would love it if each kid had at least a roller each week.
Here is my semester plan:
January 19th: Surprise Playdough---we will be mixing the color into the dough so expect to see some color on their hands. It should wash off in a day or so.
January 26th: Snow theme---think Frozen + playdough and you've about got it
February 2nd: Exploring food---but not eating the playdough, of course. The playdough will be scented. If you have any play kitchen items that they could use with their playdough it would be great. Plastic spoons, ice cream scoops, little pretend cookie trays, etc.
February 16th: Queen of Hearts---everybody LOVES to play with playdough, right?
February 23rd: Shapes/Numbers---hopefully we can learn through play
March 1st: Plant a garden---If you have mini gardening tools or a pretend watering can we could use them this week.
March 15th: Leprechaun gold and rainbows--hopefully the gold they take home won't disappear.
March 29th: Bunny with a basket of eggs---if you have egg shaped cookie cutters send them
April 5th: Growing flowers---I have scented the playdough to smell like flowers. Please let me know if rose or lavender scents will be bothersome.
April 19th: On the farm---an odd request, perhaps, but if you have Lego fencing it would be fun to create some pig pens
April 26th: Monkeys like fruit---scented playdoh again
May 3rd: Blast off to space!---Our last day will be glowing. Does anybody have a black light? If you have star cookie cutters we could use them this day.
Each week I will be sending home playdough and a mat (or two). Use them however you want at home...you will probably need a container to hold it all because it's kind of a lot of playdough. I probably went overboard just a little.
