Since we are learning about penguins this week, we used to play dough to create our own version of them!
Using play dough as a medium, pipe cleaners, and plastic eyes, we created these magnificent creatures!
Using play dough helps a child practice using certain physical skills with the hands when they manipulate the dough with their fingers.
Lastly, using play dough helps a child practice using imagination and other cognitive abilities such imitation, symbolism and problem solving.
This helps your little ones learn more about their environment as they make and mimic everyday objects with the play dough.
