Outer Space, Play Dough, Sensory Play

Outer Space Play Dough Invitation

This play dough invitation is great for your 3+ kiddos. Loose parts can be modified to make appropriate for 1.5+. We had SO much fun with this kit this week. Mr. 3.5 is interested in learning about outer space, and this play opportunity opened up a whole new route to learning and exploring the abstract concept.


  • Space themed loose parts
  • Play dough
  • Play dough tools
  • Divided tray for loose parts

Set it all up as an invitation to play. I usually leave a play dough invitation out for a week with an air tight container for little hands to put playdough away between play sessions.

The play narratives that came out of this were extraordinary. I think I had as much fun playing as Mr 3.5, which goes to show sensory and creative play can benefit us at all ages. I hope you and your little space lover find time to try this kit out! Have fun!
