Dinosaur Playdough Eggs

This is a really simple way to make playdough play more fun for your kids! I’ve learned that giving my girls an activity or open-ended prompt to do with playdough drastically increases their time playing with it, and allows them to use their imagination and flex those thinking skills!!

For this I simply hid plastic dinosaurs inside playdough and created an egg shape, for fun I rolled them in glitter which they loved. This is my favorite easy playdough recipe!

I also set out props to create a habitat with: dried chickpeas, gems, fake leaves. Again, this was a really simple activity using stuff I already had in my craft closet!

    Where are your pretty plastic pastel Dinos from?

Once the kids get the hang of it, they can hide the dinos in the eggs for one another, guess which animals are in which egg, and more. Sensory play at its finest! Details at The Mama Notes. […]
