Fairy Dough Gardens

In our classroom, we are always in interacting with play dough.The most important benefit of playdough is the word “play”.When teachers introduce playdough, they usually do not have an ultimate agenda or ending outcome – the children are simply given the opportunity to play.As part of our fairy week, we used play dough to create “gardens”, complete with glitter, flowers, and jewels!Because this was open-ended play, students were given the opportunity to manipulate the materials however they so chose.
