Playing with dough is a highly sensory activity all children love. Moving and moulding the soft putty in their hands works on their fine-motor development, strengthening their fingers - important for holding a pencil later on at school.
Being creative with the dough, rolling it into shapes, pinching and squeezing it, stabbing it and slicing it, also develops hand-eye co-ordination and precision, as well as having a deeply calming effect.
You can have as much fun making dough as playing with it. By making your own children learn to follow instructions and gain a sense of achievement. See our Ultimate Guide to Play Dough to find the recipe that's right for you.
