The holiday season is upon us which means it’s time to start planning your classroom holiday party! On top of that, you also need to think about holiday student gifts. Although this is the most magical time of year, it sure can feel a bit overwhelming. That’s why I created these Christmas play dough kits, which serve as both a classroom party station as well as a holiday student gift. A win, win in my eyes!
Ignite your students’ creativity and enhance their fine motor skills with these affordable and easy to assemble Christmas play dough kits! These kits open up a world of possibilities for imaginative play, storytelling, math activities, and beyond. With minimal supplies and the freedom to explore their creativity, children can craft incredible creations that will amaze you at your classroom Christmas party!
CHRISTMAS PLAY DOUGH KIT MATERIALS
With just a can of play dough and few sensory friendly materials, create an entire class set of Christmas play dough kits in no time at all!
- Pony beads
- Star beads
- Glitter foam stars
- Pom poms
- Googly eyes
- Pipe cleaners
- Pearl string garland
CHRISTMAS PLAY DOUGH KIT MATS
There are three different Christmas play dough kit mats. Students can choose the “Gingerbread Man,” “Build a Snowman,” or “Build a Tree.”
I like to pre-package the play dough kits and hand them out during our holiday classroom party. During the party, students can use their fine motor skills to build and play with their snowman, tree, or gingerbread man.
The cheapest place I have found to purchase individual cans of play dough in one specific color is Walmart.
CHRISTMAS PLAY DOUGH STUDENT GIFT
Simply fill a clear cellophane bag or snack baggie with play dough, the play dough mat, and a few loose parts the students will need in order to build their design. Then, tie the bag with jute twine.
Once the party ends and your students are finished playing with their play dough kit, they can tie it back up and put it in their back pack to continue the fun at home!
