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.
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:)
