Spring has officially sprung! I just love taking walks and feeling the warm sun on my face and the gentle breeze in my hair. The neighborhood kids are all outside playing, drawing on the sidewalk with chalk, blowing bubbles, jumping rope, swinging on backyard swingsets, and filling the air with laughter! It is so wonderful to get ou and enjoy nature. Seeing all the new growth – baby leaves on trees, colorful tulip and daffodile spring bulbs, and vibrant green grass.

But with outdoor beckoning children outdoors it can be hard for educators to compete for children’s attention! This fun spring educational activity will help kids continue to learn shapes, shape names, and strengthen fine motor skills while having with a super cute rabbit and carrot themed playdough activity for toddler, pre k, kindergarten, and grade 1.

Playdough Mats

The other way to learn shapes is as playdough maps. Kids can either make shaped carrots (ie pancakes), or they can make a rope and form the outline of the shape on the mat. I suggest using orange, brown, green, or black playdough. But any color will work.

Another option is for students to trace the shapes with their fingers or using a dry erase marker. Dont’ forget to point out the shape name which children can also trace with a dry erase marker to start to become familiar with shape names.
