Start off with a few batches of homemade or store-bought playdough. We have an super easy no-cook playdough recipe that can be made in a stand mixer or, if you’d prefer, we also have a one-pot stovetop playdough recipe.

Then, while the kiddos start to sink their fingers into their squishy soft playdough, read them A Rock is Lively. The words and illustrations are so beautiful and captivating!
