Learning with play dough

My daughter loves playing with play dough so this time we made it a real learning experance.Here is what we did with play dough and pieces of yarn. 

First we put the pieces of string in size order going from biggest to smallest. (While teaching her what size order is)

Then we did shape with the yarn in the play dough. (my daughter does know her shapes but has trouble making them still.)

Then we went over the sense of touch. (some yarn felt different from other yarn especially in the play dough.)

Last thing we did was take pictures. (my daughters new favorite hobby, as you can see the top left is her own picture.)

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
