Squishing, squashing, rolling, cutting, sculpting and moulding provide hours of imaginative, creative fun and learning for children of all ages. Playing with wonderdough is an awesome way for children to pass their time and it has a whole lot of benefits:
Develops fine motor skills
Playing with playdough helps children boost the development of their fine motor skills, which means it helps them improve their coordination and movements in their wrists, hands and fingers, laying important foundations for important skills like writing, drawing, painting, throwing and countless other talents involving their hands and fingers.
Supports your child’s independence and self esteem
Whatever it is that your child makes out of playdough, it is their creation. Every creation from great to small is an accomplishment for them. It helps them realise that they are capable of doing things on their own.
Nurtures creativity and imagination
Through the help of others, or on their own, children put their imagination to use to create themes, characters, scenes and much much more. The more they play with playdough, the more they stimulate their mind, imagination and cognitive skills.
Good to use as a teaching aid
The best way to learn and remember something is to paint a colourlful picture in your mind, especially while having fun! What better way to do that than with the different beautiful natural colours and scents of wonderdough!
Calming and soothing
Squishing, squashing and rolling a piece of wonderdough helps to relieve stress in children and is very calming especially since our dough is made with natural essential oils which calm nerves, promote clear, healthy skin and and also help to calm hyperactive children.
Improves social skills
