Updated: Aug 10


HAPPY SUMMER, SWEET FRIENDS!!!!!

We celebrated the summer solstice with these darling Playdoh creations, but I’m giving you full permission to do these absolutely ANY DAY OF THE YEAR!




Aren’t they darling?!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • yellow and/or orange Playdoh

  • googly eyes

  • yellow and red pipecleaners

  • yellow popsicle sticks

  • beads and gems (we used clear, orange, yellow, and red ones!)

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Form a ball of Playdoh in your hands and then gently flatten it.

  2. Add pipecleaners or popsicle sticks to the edge of your sun to form rays of sunshine.

  3. Add googly eyes and a red pipecleaner smile.

  4. Embellish as desired!

ACTIVITY EXTENSION:

  • Create a Playdoh moon to accompany your Playdoh sun!

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • What is your favourite thing about summer?

  • What are some special things you want to do together this summer?

  • How does the sun help people?

  • How can the sun hurt people?

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • fine motor skills used while manipulating the Playdoh

  • sharing materials

  • making creative decisions independently

  • showing confidence in creative choices

Ohhhh let’s brighten things up together! Tag us @theartstadium so we can see the sunshine you’re adding to the world <3
