We all know that playdough is fun but there are many benefits and learning experiences that happen when playing with play dough…Children learn and build foundational skills through it.

 

Children love playdough. It is soft, squishy and they can make anything out of it. Perhaps what makes it so appealing is that it is relaxing and therapeutic.

 

When a child moulds with playdough, the experience is always positive. There is no right or wrong way to do it so they always feel success with their creations.

 
Fundamental skills developed through Play Dough include:
  • Fine motor
  • Language
