Since we are learning about snow owls this week, we used to play dough to create our own!
Using play dough as a medium, feathers, and plastic eyes, we created our own version of our favorite snow owls!
Using play dough helps a child practice using certain physical skills with the hands when they manipulate the dough with their fingers.
Children can practice skills such as pinching, squeezing or poking while they play with the dough.
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.
