Dough Disco

October9

dough ballsNext week the children will experience our ‘dough disco’ for the first time. We first heard about Dough Disco from a Shonette Bason training course. Each child is given a ball of play dough and then we dance along to music whilst squeezing, squashing, rolling and pinching the dough in time to the music. Not only is this a lot of fun and quite therapeutic, it’s also a great way for the children to build up strength and control in their hands and fingers. This will help them with pencil control and writing.

Why not have your own dough discos at home ? You can buy play dough quite cheaply in a range of colours or make your own and then sing and dance along to your favourite songs whilst encouraging your child to squish and roll the dough ! Have a look at our play dough recipe.
