Play dough is such a wonderful activity for toddlers:

  • It develops hand strength, which later helps when they're learning to write
  • It provides a wonderful sensory experience
  • It encourages creativity
  • It’s also a calming activity for children

Here’s the one we use. It takes just 5 minutes to make:

We also prefer to use natural wood tools with our homemade playdough.

The feeling of a natural material, like wood, adds to the sensory experience.
