I love playdough activities for kids anytime of the year. There are lots of fun themes that work especially well with playdough in the spring.
You can 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 with a spring theme. The activities that might not be strictly “Montessori” would still work very well with a Montessori-inspired playdough activity tray or table.
