Playdough is an incredible tool with a wide array of developmental, learning and sensory benefits for children.
Every element of playdough is about sensory exploration. Every play dough experience can be different depending on what is introduced to the experience...colours, textures, scents and consistencies.
Playdough can act like a stress ball. How soothing is it to roll a ball in your hands over and over...it can have a very calming effect
When creating playdough, it can be made soft or more difficult to manipulate to really encourage those little hand muscles to develop. Pressing, squishing, pulling, twisting and pushing builds the muscles in the hands, wrists and arms
A child's vocabulary can be expanded as they talk about what they are doing with their peers and it allows their imagination to run wild. Comparing shapes, sizes and weights of the playdough introduces key mathematical concepts during play
The opportunities for learning are endless. It was very messy but oh, so much fun!
