Combining together two different colours of playdough provides children with an alternative media to explore colour mixing.

What do you need?

Two or more different colours of dough to mix together.

Benefits to a child's development

Mixing different coloured dough together can help children develop colour recognition as well as experimenting with what happens when two or more colours are combined. Mixing the dough also requires lots of squeezing and manipulation of the dough, all good for developing muscles in the hands.

It can also be a good vent for expressing emotions and relaxing for children.
