Play dough is such a wonderful resource for building fine motor skills. Wy and I sat down to play with some play dough recently.
I cut the straws down so they were a little shorter then showed Wy how to make a ball of play dough and then stick the straws into the play dough.
Here’s another fun way to use fine motor skills with your students
The play dough wasn’t as soft as I had hoped so it made it more difficult for Wy to poke the straws in. But in the end he did get a nice little fine motor work out:)
Oh, and our dog, Benji, enjoyed the show!
