What our experts think
A great resource to make play dough a learning experience, helping children with their number and letter recognition and allowing them the freedom to make different shapes. Interacting with the dough is great for developing strength in children’s hands and fingers which helps them progress to using a pen and writing.
Our testers liked that the provided cards were robust and gave a variety of game options and ideas to guide parents – some are more challenging than others which is ideal for children as they progress. The activities encourage lots of different skills such as counting, matching, sorting and letter formation.
