Play Dough Lions

Using play dough (or in fact any type of dough) with young children is beneficial in so many ways.


The malleable properties of play dough make it fun for investigation and exploration as well as building up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, making young writers ready for pencil and scissor control later on.


For this activity, we used play dough, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes to teach your little ones about lions.


Using their hands, they practiced placing their pipe cleaners into the dough to create their lions!
