Play-Doh Smash Game

Roll the dice.  How many Play-Doh circles can you roll and count?  LM and I had fun with this simple counting activity, but then he started to smash the circles.  This is how the game “Play-Doh Smash Game” was born.

    Thanks for this idea. My niece loves Play-doh and this helps her learn her numbers and practice her counting at the same time.
