I’m a fan of playdough activities at any time, and Christmas is an especially fun time with a number of different themes and recipes you can try at home or school. You can easily set up a Montessori-inspired playdough activity on a tray or as a separate playdough table. For ideas on creating Montessori-inspired playdough activities in general, see my original playdough roundup: Montessori-Inspired Playdough Activities 101.
Following are some fun ideas for Montessori-inspired playdough activities using a Christmas theme.
