Fun with Dough @ CPSGS ANN

Written by cpsglobalblog
In our bustling kindergarten classroom, the air was filled with excitement and anticipation as the young learners of EY2C eagerly gathered around the tables, ready to plunge into a creative and skillful exercise. Fine motor skills are crucial for children’s overall development, especially at this tender age. The tactile sensation of squishing and stretching the dough between their fingers sparked curiosity and engagement. As they kneaded the dough, they exerted just the right amount of pressure, honing their fine motor control.
The real magic unfolded when the dough was rolled out onto the table, inviting the children to explore their creativity. From simple circles to intricate shapes, each child let their imagination run wild as they manipulated the dough with their fingers. As they molded and shaped the dough, they concentrated intently, sharpening their focus and attention to detail.
Beyond the tangible outcomes, dough play fosters creativity and imagination. It encourages children to explore, experiment, and express themselves freely. With each squish and squeeze, they were not just molding dough but also shaping their cognitive abilities and problem-solving skills.
