Rabbits live in burrows, so we made our very own! Using play dough as a medium and small plastic rabbits, we created habitats for our rabbits that included a nest, a place for food, and an area for sleep!
This activity also revisited and reinforced vocabulary words such as inside, outside, under and over.
Using play dough helped your little one practice using certain physical skills with their hands as they manipulated the dough with their fingers.
Children can also practice skills such as pinching, squeezing or poking while they play with play dough.
Lastly, using play dough helps a child practice using their imaginations while they exercise other cognitive skills such as imitation, symbolism and problem solving.
This helps your little ones learn more about their environment as they make and mimic everyday objects with the play dough.
