In a vague attempt to stop the “summer slide” I made this letter hunt for my son. He loved it!
You could also add food dye to the dough, like I did with the Apple Sensory Dough last fall, but I decided to leave it the natural colour this time. The conditioner gave it a light green look anyway.
I have had these tactile letters from Learning Resources for a while now, but if you don’t have these then you could use any plastic or foam letters. I hid a selection of letters in the dough, making sure all the vowels were there and the correct letters to spell his name (which I suspected he would try first!).
We did the activity outside for easy clean up. Because yes, there were some spills, so I just hosed everything off after he had finished. My son had a great time discovering the letters and starting to make sight words. AND his name!
This activity was a complete success, and I am sure that it will be repeated!Letter Hunt in Sensory Dough #playrecipes #earlyliteracy Click To Tweet
