The Wonder of Playdough

13th Oct 2020

Our reception children have been enjoying the benefits of playdough play.     

Heres just a few reasons why we love it so much.

  1. Fine Motor Skills: great for strenghening those little hand muscles- rolling, squishing, flattening dough all encourage prewriting skills, cutting skills and holding a pencil with a pincer grasp.
  2. Creativity and Imagination: using playdough allows their imagination to flourish. The children love creating new things-here linked to our autumn topic.
  3. Develops hand-eye co-ordination: by using their hands to shape the dough and using a range of materials their co-ordination can be enhanced.
