Playdough helps to build fine motor skills. All that squishing, rolling and flattening is perfect to help develop the muscles in your child’s hands so one day they can do things like paint and hold a pencil. Playdough is also the perfect medium for imaginative play and making playdough involves maths and science skills as children learn, measure, mix and make colours.
