Playdough activities for kids using pasta is like popcorn and raisins (meaning, they go together well) in our house. Playdough activities with pasta encourages kids imagination and creativeness, PLUS it's super beneficial for kids. I LOVE it because:
- It's so easy to set it up.
- The variety of shapes that pasta have allows children to create very different characters and surroundings.
- Handling playdough is a a good sensor activity for children, handling pasta is fantastic motor skills practice for those little fingers.
So don't delay, get your playdough and pasta out and get to work. But first, check out these super awesome and very creative ways how to incorporate pasta with playdough.
