Today in the Home Room the children were delighted to make playdough. They decided to make green and yellow playdough which smelt of “lovely lemons”. The children were very creative using pretty shells, buttons and other materials to decorate their playdough. Adding props to playdough helps to support the children’s learning. They used their imaginations and produced some brilliant creations. Along with being great fun, playing with playdough helps to develop the children’s fine motor skills. It strengthens the muscles in their fingers which they will then use to write. The children find playdough calming but were very excited to keep their own piece throughout the day and take home with them to play with.
