Play dough


Play dough is every child’s favorite activity. It can be used in so many different ways to keep children engaged and learning at the same time.

It strengthens the finger and hand muscles, an indirect preparation for writing.

Some ideas:

Roll play dough with rolling pin.

Flatten play dough with hands.

Use cookie cutter to make different things.

Roll play dough into balls & use to count numbers.

Use spoons, fork, cups etc to make different patterns on play dough.

Of course, the list is endless.
