Play Dough Aquarium
Under The Sea
Here's a fun project for toddlers. Use ready made play dough or extend the activity by making your own.
for an easy play dough recipe or
for a 3 ingredient no cook recipe.
: 20 minutes
: Under 5s
Green and or blue play dough
Plastic sea creatures (we also used fish shaped beads and transparent beads). Also try sequins, glass pebbles, pebbles etc.
Ready to go!
Flatten the play dough with rolling pin or just with hands.
Stamp out a circle of play dough using the rim of the bowl like a cookie cutter.
Fill your aquarium by pressing plastic sea creatures or other items into the play dough circle.
My kids loved this activity and were keen to pick the sea creatures and beads out at the end, roll out the play dough again and make different versions using different items.
