I am hosting a 30-day challenge in one of our facebook groups and I totally love it. Play-dough Play was our theme today.
This activity helps with prewriting skills, to develop the finger strength. These same hands which Roll, press, stamp the play dough will hold a pencil one day with confidence 🙂
They will let their imaginations go wild. They could make surprise eggs, an ice cream cone party uff!!
I can only think of so much but a child could explore horizons.
You can hide treasures inside the dough and let them pull it out.
Give them other props like plastic knife, scissors, rolling pin, cookie cutter etc., they will experience free play.
What did we do?
I also sneaked in some lemon essence to it and oh boy, I fell in love with how it smells.
I would be updating this post further each time we have fun with play dough. It is becoming our home school staple 🙂
