Come and make Playdough with Ange

Updated: Sep 9

Watch Ange make some playdough and then you could make some at home.

At LJPS, we use playdough regularly in our curriculum. Not only is playdough an enjoyable and interesting experience for children there are so many more developmental benefits. Manipulating play

dough is excellent for the development of fine motor skills. Children need to develop their finger muscles and have some finger control before they can learn to write. Children will naturally mould, flatten, squish, pinch, break and roll the substance. To develop fine motor control even further, give your child extra utensils to play with such as cutters, plastic knives and a rolling pin. Playdough is an excellent tool for language development and development of vocabulary. It also supports social interactions and the development of imagination. Join Ange today in making some playdough and send us a photo at ljps@bigpond.com to show us what colour you choose and what you created.
