Phonics and Literacy
Play dough is fantastic for all sorts of learning and especially for developing fine motor skills.
In phonics it can be used to make letters or to make objects that start with or contain certain sounds. It can also be used as sound buttons.
In maths it can be used to make counters, form numbers, make different shapes and order objects by size.
It is a marvelous resource and very easy to make:
2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of hot water
1 tablespoon of cream of tar tar
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Food colouring of your choice
Mix all together and it should last for a significant amount of time if kept in an air tight container
Try adding glitter or flavouring for a more sensory experience!
