What will you serve as a festive meal this Chinese New Year? Children can make playdough dumplings and noodles to add to this plate. Or perhaps fortune cookies?
Chinese New Year Meal Playdough Mat
Rice is one of the staple foods of China. Making lots of small pieces of rice from playdough is going to be a great way to encourage children to work on their fine motor skills! But of course they can add some vegetables, and meat too...
This playdough mat can be enjoyed by older children as well as younger kids. Use the outline of the dragon to mold your own on top, giving him as little or as much detail as you want and making him multi-coloured or plan, stripy or spotty or something in between!
