Montessori Activity: Teaching Letters with Playdough


Age: From 2 years old

Objective(s):
1. To teach letters in a fun way.
2. To train fine motor skills.

Materials:
1. 1 sore-bought or homemade playdough
2. 5 Letter moulds
3. 1 child's size rolling-pin (from IKEA)
4. 1 tray

Directions:
1. Show your child how to mould a letter.

2. Invite your child to try.

3. Store it in the fridge until ready to be used. Let it thaw first, it will be easier to work with.

Tips:
Mold your child's name

Additional Information:
Joshua tried it today, but he was rather sceptical about tasting it. But once he took the first bite, he was hooked :-) Thereafter, he spent more time tasting than playing with the dough. So an edible dough can be distractive.
