I like to set out a different set of colored playdough on a table in their playroom.
Then, we talk about biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest with the watermelon sheets.
Or, we talk about the difference between a popsicle and an ice cream with the popsicle/ice cream sheet.
So many different ways to go about these summer pictures of playdough sheets for learning in a fun way!
