Play dough is such a fantastic resource for learning in the early years, so I’ve created some simple play dough task cards for you to enjoy with your little learners!

The set includes 12 different ‘I can’ statements so that your students or children can take control of their own learning. The cards are perfect for your play dough station for literacy, numeracy and imaginative play.


I’ve included both A6 and A4 versions of the cards as well as US and AUS spelling for the word ‘color/colour. Use the A6 versions to put together a ring of choices for the group, or laminate the A4 versions for a single focus activity.

The task cards cover both Literacy (sight words, names) and Numeracy (longer, shorter, taller, shorter) with a few creative cards too (make a monster, make a person).

I love how Nikki from @the_magic_of_play on Instagram used our cards with her little learners! Check out all those fine motor skills being developed while her daughter uses the cards during her play dough exploration!

Would your little learners enjoy these play dough task cards? You can grab a copy here!
