Simple Feather Color Sorting Playdough Activity
Whenever playdough is involved, my girls enjoy the activity so much!
This activity was really simple to put together and only required 3 simple items.
Items you probably already have at home.
I used colour dough for this activity by adding the playdough rainbow and feathers into an empty ice cube tray.
I’ll go more into detail on how you can make this simple playdough learning activity work for learning about colors, sorting…
I’ll also share some fun toddler color activities and preschool color activities.

What is a manipulative activity for preschoolers
A manipulative activity involves some sort of a loose part (such as a set of toys, or erasers, counting chips..) that work to incorporate a bit of open ended play for them to learn and play and create something epic.
For example, I have a sheet with the letter A on it.
The letter A is very big and takes up the entire sheet.
I want to learn about the letter A and I will do this by filling in the letter A spaces on the sheet with a manipulative such as a pom pom.
This involves a bit of learning through play because while the child is learning they’re playing!
