We have done some fun things with play dough in the past, and I am always looking for new ways to reinvent it. When I saw the play dough zoo at House of Baby Piranha, I knew my girls would love it. This is really simple and you can make it with your kids. All you need is some play dough, Popsicle sticks and small animal toys. We have a ton of Little People animals and this was a great way to use them. Yeah, I know a cow doesn’t really belong in a zoo, but he got tired of hanging out at the farm.
The girls extended this activity on their own. B took some of the play dough and was trying to feed her animals. She had a hard time rolling the play dough into balls, so I helped her with that and she pretended to be a zookeeper. B’s animal will not go hungry.
