What It Is
Play-Doh Let's Create: Numbers is an activity book that helps kids learn and use numbers 1-10 in creative and engaging ways. The set includes the storybook about Clever Cat and her friends at the fair, six one-ounce cans of Play-Doh, 10 plastic number molds, a two-sided play mat, and two handheld extruders.
Is It Fun?
Kids will get a kick out of looking at the Play-Doh pictures and, of course, playing and molding with the classic compound. But this will be terrific for guided co-play with an adult as children learn numbers. Adding the manipulative play with the Play-Doh and the mat is a pedagogically inspired way for kids to interact with the numbers and create kinesthetic learning and transference, all of which help reinforce a solid learning experience in a fun and familiar play pattern.
Who It’s For
Play-Doh Let's Create: Numbers is for ages 3 and up. Younger kids especially are going to need some adult help to open the cans of Play-Doh.
What To Be Aware Of
For better results and more satisfaction in molding shapes, especially for younger kids, you may want to add additional Play-Doh, but that just adds to the fun and learning.
