Spring Play Dough

The Ladybirds explored a natural Spring play dough station. 

A variety of tools were used to roll out the dough including rolling pins and bowls and mortars. 

The children used flowers to add to the dough to create spring themed creations. 

The children took on a role in their play as they pretended to make flower pizza. 

Early writing hand movements were developed as the children sprinkled petals onto the dough. 

Flowers were added to pestle and mortars and the children crushed the flowers and smelt the mixture commenting on the smell. 

A variety of senses were used to touch and smell. 

Ingredients were poured from one container to another practising both physical and mathematical skills.
