This superhero play dough activity was a huge hit with my preschooler! It really sparked his creativity and was great fine motor practice as well. He had tons of fun with it!
I took out the play dough to do another activity and after that one my son asked if he could add his small superhero figures to the play dough. It sounded like a great idea to me, so I told him to go for it!

He totally loved this play dough activity. He played with it for an hour and the only reason he stopped was because it was nap time. It’s so simple to set up too!

Superhero Play Dough Activity
This activity is totally independent and a great thing to leave out for your kids when you need to cook dinner or get other stuff done. I bet you will be surprised by how engrossed they will get in the activity.
My son put the superheroes in balls of play dough and then dug them back out. This was awesome fine motor practice for him. And if you have been following my blog for a while you know that I struggle to get him to do fine motor work.
He put the superheroes in the play dough cup and buried them. He even made lava with the orange play dough and the superheroes had to watch out so it didn’t hit them. I thought that was quite creative. Hehe.
It was an awesome way for him to be creative, have fun and develop fine motor skills. I definitely will pull this one out again!
