So if you remember my first Playdough post I was originally going to try a sensory herb smelling playdough activity, but we got sidetracked. So this time we kept the playdough inside on a rainy day and brought the outside, inside. Then decided to try our Sensory playdough activity.
We started off with some mint leaves and chives to mix into the playdough. The boys spent some time cutting up their leaves so they could be mixed in better and went to work smelling their fingers and playdough. Poking holes to put the hebs in and cutting up the playdough with scissors and then with a makeshift wooden “knife”. My 4yo even decided to get out his magnifying glass to investigate his herb smelling playdough.
They worked side by side so diligently that I would have thought they had a serious job to do. And I guess playing and creating is a serious job to a 3 and 4 year old.
Once he was able to stand and walk around he was happy again.
Herb smelling playdough was a hit and of course went in a direction I didn’t plan which was even better!
