We’ve been loving our Christmas themed activities lately! Today, I am very excited to share some amazing Christmas play dough ideas that you can use with your kids! My son absolutely adores play dough exploration – I can’t wait to explore these with him!
Play dough is a wonderful toy! Children love to explore with it, play, and create. Aside from being so much fun, there are so many wonderful benefits to including play dough activities and invitations in your children’s play (or school) activities.
Manipulating play dough strengthens the muscles in children’s hands. This is very important for the development of skills such as writing, using scissors, closing zippers, and more practical skills. It also contributes to the development of fine motor skills.
Playdough also strengthens hand-eye coordination, as children manipulate small parts and pieces while they play. It’s also a fun way to express creativity and imagination!
You can use the beautiful invitations to create with play dough and amazing homemade, non-toxic recipes below to make fun activities for your little ones!
