Benefits of Playing with Playdough

Playdough is a great toy for your preschool or kindergarten student. It provides several benefits:

Strengthens Grip
Squeezing, squishing, and warming up the playdough helps to strengthen your student’s grip.

Builds Fine Motor Skills
Rolling the dough into the snake-like shape and using it to fill the color word helps build your student’s fine motor skills.

Boosts Creativity
After your student builds the color words, challenge him to create something out of that color of playdough. Can he make a red bear? What other things are red? Encourage him to use his imagination to build other red things.
