Flatten the playdough. The easiest way to get a smooth finish is to press the dough on a flat surface, then turn it around. Pick a letter from the playdough letter cards and copy it by writing in the dough!

Ask the child to use the same color playdough as the playdough letter card. This just adds a bit of a challenge and makes it more interesting- and gives more opportunity to use visual perception skills(color recognition)!
