Then they experimented with adding patterns using the lovely wooden rolling pins. They felt these with these fingers and tried to describe them.
Then they decorated them using sequins, sparkles and ribbons, turning them into brooches, cookies and ornaments.
When they finished playing I picked off the embellishments and stored the dough in a zip loc bag where it should stay soft for a few months. I can’t wait to try the other flavours and scents soon!
What they are learning as they play:
Motor Skills: pincer grasp, transferring small objects, squashing and rolling malleable dough
Creative Arts: cutting shapes, decorating with a range of media, combining media, working in 3D, model making
Literacy: descriptive language
Sensory: exploring play materials using all of the senses
