We explore and manipulate play dough in our house every day. Here we have our “Joy”, “Anger”, and “Sadness” play dough. This is how we decided to use it today:
We pushed our pegs down into the play dough, and pulled them back out. She ended up turning it into a color sorting activity all on her own!
What is she getting out of this activity?
- enjoying a tactile experience
- developing fine motor skills
- color recognition
- developing hand-eye coordination
- experimenting with cause and effect
- fun time with mommy
