Introducing seasoned "pizza dough" playdough! This stuff literally smells just like pizza but, unlike real pizza dough, it keeps well and isn't sticky. And (applause) no one has eaten it! ...yet.
Our little pizza shop made for a lot of great language including sequencing, vocabulary, recall, and some really wonderful peer interactions. We practiced taking friends' orders and using tools to roll and shape the dough.
Our 'pizza toppings' were added using pieces from this Melissa & Doug set. The kids 'baked' their pizzas in our play oven and packed them for 'delivery' into empty boxes from our local pizza shop.
How are you spicing up (literally!) your playdough play?
