Play dough activities are the perfect multi-sensory activity to strengthen fine motor muscles and learn various literacy, math, and SEL skills. Make learning FUN again with playdough! Use the visual playdough routine charts (many options to choose from) so students can play at the center independently with peers. The task cards and posters have real photographs to show students various ways they can manipulate the dough.
