Play-Doh is for toddlers aged 24 months and above but my son started playing with it when he was around 10 or 11 months, I  always supervise him whenever we play with it. From the start, I made it clear to him that Play-Doh is for playing and not for eating. Sure, he tasted it a few times but when he was satisfied, he stopped doing that. So, keep an eye on your child if you give him Play-Doh. If your child is still putting random things in his mouth, Play-Doh may not be a good idea. Browse my archives to find more suitable activities.

This is the starter set (which is a great gift idea, by the way). It’s very affordable at Php300. I had the same thing when I was a kid so I was excited when I saw this at Toys R Us. I told myself that my son has to have this.

It comes with a few accessories and 2 tubs of brightly colored Play-Doh.

I love Play-Doh because it forces my little one to use his imagination. We spend a lot of time playing with different colors, cutters, etc. This is an open-ended toy so the possibilities are endless. You are only limited by your imagination.

It’s also a great learning tool. I will share with you some of our Learning Through Play-Doh games and lessons soon.

You can use Play-Doh to teach about colors, shapes and simple objects and animals. It’s also great for finger and hand strength to develop his fine motor skills. It’s a great activity if you know how to utilize it. We have acquired quite a few sets already in the last few months. Even my husband got our little one a set from Hong Kong.

So, yeah! Play-Doh is fun for the whole family! If you have more toddler activity ideas, please share them in the comments below. Include a link to your site so everyone can visit it.
