My 4-year old played with the play dough longer than I expected. He started out by singing “Happy Birthday” for St. Patrick’s Day. I thought it was adorable. Next, he counted all the coins then divided them evenly in the cauldrons. They have been practicing addition at school so he wanted to incorporate it with this activity. Let your child use their imagination with the play dough tray. I let my 4-year play uninterrupted to create whatever made him happy. It gave me a chance to get some things done around the house. Ask them questions about their creations when they are finished.  I asked my son if I could help him roll the play dough. He also wanted to show me how he created different size shamrocks with the cookie cutters.
