Early Learning through Play(dough)
Explore the benefits of playing with playdough! Learn early literacy skills and have fun at Playdough Playdate.
Play is an important part of Every Child Ready to Read, as children learn about language through different kinds of play. Children learn about language through playing as the activities help them put thoughts into words and talk about what they are doing.
We feature play through our events and spaces at the library, like the expanded play areas at Schimelpfenig, Davis and Haggard Libraries. These spaces are self-guided, and have many educational and early learning toys and furniture perfect for early learners.
Playdough Playdate is one of our programs available at Plano Public Library which help children develop early literacy skills. Playdough Playdate is an early learning program for children ages 2-5 and their caregivers. The final Playdough Playdate of 2019 will be Saturday, December 28 at 11 am at Schimelpfenig Library.
As you can see in the video above, perfect for children ages 2-5 with parents/caregivers, your little ones will enhance their fine motor skills and improve pre-writing grips, build their creativity and imagination, explore cause-and-effect, and increase their curiosity and knowledge.
Playdough Playdate returns in Spring 2020, with specific dates and times available in our Spring 2020 Engage Brochure. Be sure to stop by one of our five locations to pick up a printed copy for easy planning!
Other early learning resources include the Family Place Library at Harrington and Schimelpfenig Libraries, as well as SNAP Storytime at Haggard and Davis Libraries.
Playdough Playdate is a come and go event and does not require a ticket.
