Simply pick a shape card and decide if you want to trace it with the marker or use play dough OR both. You can buy playdough or use one of our favorite recipes like our Ice Cream Edible Playdough, Amazing Kool Aid Playdough Recipe, or our simple 2 ingredient playdough. You can even use other small manipulatives to “trace” the shape eg. mini erasers, stickers, or buttons.
Some children would prefer using play dough over writing with a utensil, which is still developing those fine motor skills believe it or not! When manipulating play dough, the fine muscles in the fingers and hands get a workout too!

Encourage the child to also trace the name of the shape with a marker and “reading” the name while doing so.
