Practicing the alphabet is F-U-N when you use Play-Doh compound to help kids learn how to form letters and make simple words. Want a challenge? Have them try to spell their names! Enjoy going back to school with Play-Doh compound teaching tools and activities.
PlayDrMom explains ways to use playdough in Play Therapy. Play dough with children can be extremely effective because children can heal just by creating with their hands. They do not even need to talk or go over their story.
Although this seems like a younger child's activity, this teaches students how imprints are made on coins. Students will push anything with texture, like coins, onto the play-dough and see what imprints they make.
A rock and play doh. One is hard and the other pliable. A pinner use this to teach kids that some things are within their control (Play-Doh problems) and some things are not (rock problems). I give them a set to take home as a reminder. Throughout therapy I'll often ask, is that a rock problem or a Play-Doh problem?
