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.

If you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.
Please place the Montessori Monday button (using the code from the right sidebar) in your post or put a link back to this post.
