Today in the home room, the children have enjoyed making different textures of playdough and exploring their fine motor skills in different ways. Some children enjoyed using the stampers to create different shapes and imprints in the playdough, like a “Seahorse. Look, he’s got a big long tail!”
We made different colours, using our manipulative skills to mix and squish all the ingredients together to form the dough.
Some children even explored some role playing with their peers, sharing the playdough and had a little ‘cupcake’ and ‘tea party!’
“I’m making a strawberry pie”
”Tea! Hot hot.’
Playdough is great for developing many skills, and it is super easy to make. You’ll probably have all the ingredients in your home! All you need is; Flour, salt, oil, and water. You can make it more fun by adding paints/food colouring/scents etc. You could even brave glitter!! Have fun everyone!
