Monster Making Play Dough Halloween Activity

There are so many fun ways to enjoy Halloween with kids! Keep it simple by putting together a monster making play dough tray that will be perfect to take out all month long!

Supplies Needed: – 1. Dollar store pumpkin decorating kits – 2. Eyeballs – 3. Spiders – 4. Pipe cleaner twists and colored gems – 5. Pieces of small pvc tubing – 6. Halloween themed cookie cutters

I chose to make a double batch of play dough so we could make lots of monsters at once and the pieces to stick into the dough were on the bigger side too!

Try Mr. Potato head pieces too! Rolling monster head balls is great work for little hands and really strengthens muscles! Sticking the monster parts into the Halloween play dough is also excellent fine motor skills work.

All sorts of crazy combinations can be made.

A monster making play dough tray is great for independent play time, siblings of various ages, and even grown ups too!  Play dough is such great hands-on play for kids and perfect for working on fine motor skills.
