Learning Numbers and Shapes with Play-Doh {Toddler Play}

Play-Doh Egg

Making shapes out of Play-Doh is one of our son’s favorite activities, he usually spends a few hours every week sitting at our table playing with it. We definitively encourage it because he is developing his fine motor skills and creativity while he plays.

We recently received the Play-Doh Back to School Chalkboard Playset and it has been a fantastic addition to his Play-Doh building routine.   This colorful back to school set includes 10 number cutters, 6 shape cutters, scissors, roller and 4 three-ounce cans of Play-Doh.

The set has everything little ones need to learn about shapes, numbers, cutting, squeezing and rolling. Great for the development of their skills and providing hours of entertainment.  My son is just learning the numbers and shapes so being able to practice those while he is playing is wonderful.

Play-Doh Back to School

Play-Doh is non-toxic, colorful and fun, it is easy to to mold and build things with it and little ones love it. I definitely would recommend this product, especially for children who would benefit from tactile/sensory stimulation and children learning numbers and shapes.

Buy it: The Play-Doh Back to School Chalkboard Playset is just $9.99 online. Recommended for ages 3 and up.

    I love Play Doh, and I love the idea of the shapes to learn letters, numbers, colours, shapes and I LOVE LOVE the little scissors. My little one would love to get his hands on those! I will have to look into getting something like this, I do make my own playdoh though and it has worked out for us very well!!

    I used to love to play with Play-Doh when I was younger. Who am I kidding it is still fun. I love it when I see children learning and playing at the same time. Nice to see your son playing and having so much fun and getting so much enjoyment from something so simple yet so timeless. As you mentioned OSM, what a great way for children to learn their numbers and shapes. Way to go Play-Doh. Thank you for this post OSM.

    I didn’t know playdoh has a number and shape set. That is a great idea. My son loves playing with playdoh so it’ll be a great way to incorporate some educational aspect into his play.
