Chicka Chicka Boom Boom {Storytime Playdough Activity}

We’ve been having a BLAST with our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom playdough activity! Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of our favorite books, so naturally we had to create an activity that incorporated the storyline. Never read the book? Pick it up from your local library or order it online here.

What You’ll Need

Tweezers to grab the coconuts and letters with and transfer to the coconut tree (optional, but the kids love using them and they help with fine motor skills)
