Play dough is a wonderful resource that the children love to use in Nursery and Reception.
When your child squishes, rolls, flattens, shapes, smashes, pushes, pulls, twists or cuts play dough, they develop and strengthen their hand muscles. This will help your child develop the strength, dexterity, and control needed to manipulate everyday items such as scissors, pencils, zippers, and buttons.
