Lots of fun with play dough!

We had great fun this afternoon with our new play dough tubs.
Everyone has their own tub and mat.

Playing with dough is a super way to build up the muscles in our hands. This is so important in Junior Infants as we will be working with scissors and learning how to write.

Here’s a recipe for salt dough which the children could make at home and play with.

Salt dough can be reused if it is covered with cling film or in a lunchbox.

We will start our day tomorrow with more play dough time!!
