Mr Potato Head and Play Dough

An activity that I have found generates much fun for children of all ages is play dough. I am always on the look out for new and exciting ways for us to use our dough so was keen to try the suggestion to combine Mr Potato head with dough. 

After making up a large ball of dough and adding our favourite ingredient (glitter!!) the children spotted the Mr Potato Head and the dough and immediately dashed over to play. This activity held the attention of children ranging from one to seven years of age and the resulting combinations were fantastic. 

Even our one year old had a good go at making a character, sounding out all the body parts that he recognised as he did so.
