Last month I attended a professional development day for StrongStart facilitators from the north island. Each person that attended left with a draw prize. Mine was this wonderful sectioned basket which contained shells, jewels and sticks. I added blue play dough and watched the children play.
Play dough offers many opportunities for children. Storytelling, fine motor, experimenting (will the sticks stand straight up), sharing, creativity, understanding how materials can work together, are just a few.
