This week we have exploring our lemon smelling play dough, using different shaped cutters and rolling pins. The babies have been using their hands to manipulate the play dough, squashing squeezing and poking, developing our fine motor skills.
The babies have been using the rolling pins and saying “roll roll” then they placed a cutter onto the play dough and said “push push”. This has been encouraging their ever developing language skills.
During the week some of the babies brought bowls over to the play dough and started to fill and empty the bowls. Emptying and filling is a focused interest for the children at the moment, we also used this schema in the sand pit and water play.
