Henry Hedgehog - Play Dough Activity


Autumn is here and this is a fantastic play dough activity for the kids. My Little Learners made Henry hedgehog in class and they loved him!

It is such a fun activity, great for developing those fine motor skills/hand-eye coordination and is so easy to make.


All you needs is:

  • Playdough
  • Pasta (uncooked)
  • Play tweezers or tongs

To make:

  • Make the hedgehogs rounded body using the playdough with your hands.
  • Push the pasta into the hedgehogs back to make the spikes.

For an added bit of fun – Give the kids play tweezers or tongs and tell them to take the spikes out but they can only use the tweezers or tongs.

Hope you enjoy!
