Hope you all are doing good and are healthy and happy, today I am going to share a new fun way which I and Maanya are using these days for our activities, we call it Playdough-A fun learning tool.
We all definitely have playdough at our place if you have kids at home, and honestly speaking more than my daughter I enjoy playing with play dough.
For the past few months, as the schools are closed and we are having online classes it has been a little difficult for me to keep Maanya interested in her studies, though she is young and has just started writing, we thought it would be fun to explore new ways of using play dough and making it simpler to learn.
The first thing we did was to learn making alphabet with dough.
Let me give you an example
Suppose we are making a capital A
For that, we require to make 2 long lines and 1 short line by rolling the playdough.
Now ask the child to form an A using the 3 given lines, help them if they require any help, or just watch them make their cute little A out of playdough. Similarly, you can make them learn about rainbows, numbers or words or even fill in the blanks.
The second thing which I did with Maanya was inspired by one of my very good friends Tinika, she made these lovely vegetable miniature out of clay.
Not only are these easy to make but are so adorable that the child will love to recreate it, and while those little hands work you can talk about the vegetables, colors and this way they also learn about vegetables and much more.
It might look difficult to make so a complete tutorial video of HOW TO MAKE VEGETABLE MINIATURE has been linked below for your reference.
These are just some inspiration on how to use playdough for fun learning, you can create so many other things like fruits, shapes or animals.
Making learning fun for kids not only helps them learn easily but also keeps them interested in learning more.
These activities also help in enhancing Motor Skills in Kids.
