Developing our hand muscles

Home » News » Developing our hand muscles

Freddie asked last week if we could make play dough, so this week we have been making play dough from scratch!

We learnt we had to combine different ,materials to make it. First we added salt to our tray, "it's soft" said Harry "looks like sugar" said George. Next we added to our mixture baby oil, baby lotion, water and food colouring. We mixed it all together using our hands. "its turning pink" said Eliza observing the colour changing. Finally we added flour and mixed it all together "wow it's making play dough" said George "it's all sticky" said Isobel "it's gooey" said Harry. With lots of patience and perseverance we turned all our ingredients into play dough — wow!

Once we had made our play dough we could play with it, we rolled it into long wiggly worms then used scissors to cut it into pieces, rolled it into small balls using the palm of our hands, we then patted it down flat "it's a pancake" Eliza said.

This activity is so much fun and really helps strengthen our hand muscles which will help us with our pencil grip.

Perhaps you could make play dough at home preschool?

Have fun,
