Home Activity: Make Your Own Play Dough

Tops Day Nurseries have remained open for those who fall under the Key Worker category, but we also want to support those of you who are self-isolating and looking for home activity ideas to try at home.

Tops Isle of Wight have put together a video of a fantastic home activity idea to show how you can make playdough with your child at home. Playdough offers many learning opportunities for fine motor skills, imagination and creativity, textures, maths & literacy, science & discovery and more! Why not give it a go and see where your imaginations take you.


  • Cup of flour
  • Half to a full cup of water
  • Tablespoon of oil
  • Any food colouring or paint to add colour
  • You can also add different essences to make it smell different

It’s as easy as that!
