Play-doh Prints

Little man loooooves play-doh, me not so much, but hey sometimes you gotta let kids be kids right? This morning he wanted to bust out the play-doh out and I thought we’d do something different.

I pulled out the bucket of dollar tree and happy meal toys and grabbed a few cars as well and we had a little experiment.

We looked at the bottoms of each toy and than made prints with them in the play-doh.

Mini Thor was excited to see what kinds of prints we could make. I loved seeing him experiment and discover.
(For older kids, this could be used to teach the scientific method, have them make a hypothesis of what print an item will make and then test it)

We also made prints with different vehicle toys and compared the tracks they made.

And of course Mini Thor had to see what kind of print he would leave 🙂

It’s amazing how a few items you have laying around can led to a little science experiment and tons of smiles 🙂
