Christmas Tree Dough
Play dough is a firm favourite here and adding a Christmas theme to our tough ensured the children were keen to come and play. Children were provided with dough and rolling pins together with Christmas tree shaped cutters enabling them to cut out their own trees.
Through providing jars of stars and gems the children were soon in the mood for tree decorating. Even with the same base materials the different ages and creative skills of the children resulted in a wide variety of finished products.
This activity enabled children to practice their fine motor pincer grip together with lots of pushing and pinching skills as they worked together to decorate their trees in their own creative ways.
