Week 2: v for van tracks in Play-Doh

This is a great activity to drive vans through the Play-Doh to see the tracks. It is fantastic for Physical Development in making the tracks and observational skills as part of Knowledge and Understanding of the World.

Go on a van toy hunt and collect as many as you can from around the house.

With your Play-Doh get your child to roll it flat with a rolling pin. Then start driving the different vans through the dough and see the different tracks that they make.

You can talk about pressing harder and softer on the van to make the tracks deeper and compare all of the tracks before rolling out the dough and doing it all again.
