Play-Doh Shape & Learn Letters & Language
What It Is

Play-Doh is fun for creative play, but now parents can use it as a fun way to introduce letters, first words, and more with the Play-Doh Shape & Learn Letters & Language playset. This comes with six cans of Play-Doh, 26 letter stampers, a stylus, a roller, two double-sided playmats, and a Together Time Guide.

The guide contains activities that parents and kids can do together to help kids explore the playset's learning concepts. All of the activities combine the Play-Doh and the tools to get kids practicing letter recognition, letter sounds, writing, and identifying emotions.

In one activity, kids are asked to match the capital letters on the stampers to the lowercase letters on the mat. They can also use the stylus to trace the letters on the mat and then write the letters onto some flattened Play-Doh. Another activity has kids identifying objects on the mat, finding the letter stamper that matches the first letter in that object's word, and stamping or writing the letter into Play-Doh. 

Yet another activity has kids using Play-Doh to create the upper and lowercase letters or objects that start with a specific letter. And using the side of the playmat with the blank face on it, kids can use Play-Doh to create hairstyles and faces, particularly faces that portray specific emotions.

Is It Fun?
This is a really nice way for a parent and child to play together. Kids get to mash and mold with Play-Doh, while parents get to guide children through different activities that all promote the hands-on exploration of letters and language. The variety of activities means that kids can play a different way each time they open up the set, and, of course, kids can use all the tools on their own to engage in some classic creative Play-Doh play.
Who It’s For
The Play-Doh Shape & Learn Letters & Language playset is for ages 2 and up. It will be a fun and hands-on way to introduce preschoolers to letters, words, and more.
