Roll, poke, coil, pound, flatten, squeeze, stretch — there is nothing more hands-on than working with play dough! The physical pleasure of handling play dough is complimented by how open-ended it can be. Anything can be made from dough — a wiggly snake, a flat round pancake, a smiley cat, a barking dog. Yet, with a little quick squeeze, it becomes a lump of dough again ready to be moulded into another creation according to your child’s vivid imagination. The freedom to change one’s mind and create anew is one of the great joys of playing with dough.
