We’ve been creating MiniBeasts today with playdough and various collage materials (see our post on the benefits of collages here).
This activity is fantastic for fine motor skills, creativity, imaginative skills and also learning about insects. It’s also easy and great for a range of ages and abilities.
What do you need?
- Selection of Collage materials (googly eyes, feathers, sticks, sequins, pipecleaners etc)
- Playdough or similiar
How do you make it?
Really simple activity! We found the best way was to provide a ‘buffet style’ of materials for the kids to choose from and give them a dollop of playdough on a plate.
What’s wonderful about play dough is you can easily start again/remould it if you change your mind on what you would like to make!
Here’s some more of our creations…
