Fine motor development in preschool with play dough and straws

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:)

Oh, and our dog, Benji, enjoyed the show!
