What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
Enhances fine motor skills- When your child rolls, squishes or flattens, play dough, they develop and strengthen their hand muscles.
Improves pre-writing skills- Children need to develop their finger muscles and have proper finger control before they can learn to write at school. Play dough is great for this as it strengthens their pincer grip.
Communication and vocabulary- As your child is working on their monster creation they form new ideas and concepts. Their vocabulary increases as they interact, talk, discuss problems and find solution with their peers, parents or teachers.
Creativity and imagination- This activity works on creativity as a child has to mould from an image they hold mentally. As children get older and more experienced at moulding playdough, their creations will show more detail and creativity.
Develops hand eye coordination- Use of variety of shapes and rolling pins while playing with play-dough will improve your child’s hand-eye-coordination
Concentration – Play-dough is often a quiet activity which requires a child to sit still for periods of time, this is great for lengthening a child’s concentration span over time.
