This is a super fun playdough center – perfect during the fairy tale, The Three Little Pigs. I make a big batch of brown playdough and put out the three materials the three pigs used to build their houses. I let the children know that they can build a house for their “pig” any way they wish. Sometimes they want to add rocks and shells. It is so much fun!
Brown Playdough (I like to use Wilton's brown food dye)
bricks (used as the foundation to build on)
a small plastic pigs
The children simply push playdough on to the brick and they can make the sticks stand up.
This student wanted to use some of the driftwood we had in a basket in science. Love it!
You can see the playdough in this photo.
