Playdough Tools from around the house

Here are some tools we like for playing with Playdough.

  • Garlic Press

  • Potato Masher

  • Cookie Cutters

  • Rolling Pin (Im going to find a small dowel and make a mini rolling pin for her)

  • Dip Spreader (not sure the actual name but it's not sharp but could be used to cut the playdough)

  • Juicer piece (I never use this and she likes the shape in makes in the dough)

  • Toddler Fork (nice blunt ends but makes indentations in the dough)


If using edible playdough, have the accessories edible too! Give the child a plate with a few of each of the following (or whatever is in the pantry):

cheerios - coconut

pretzel sticks - fruit loops

raisens - goldfish crackers

This could be what it takes to complete their masterpiece to perfection and then eat it all up :-)
