No matter how many toys, games, movies, and friends your child has, every now and then it’s inevitable that they will come to you saying they are bored. While they are pretty good at keeping themselves entertained, sometimes they just get tired of the same old activities. To help you manage that, our team at The Brook Childcare always come up with some ideas that will not only keep your child busy, but that will also help them develop certain skills, like their coordination and creativity, promoting healthy growth.
This play dough recipe is easy to follow and guarantees an afternoon full of fun. You can either have a no-rules approach, just letting the children free to create whatever their busy minds allow, or you can have a specific project in mind – new fridge magnets, fun jewellery, Christmas ornaments, or even party favours or decorations.
Our top tips are to get creative with colours and to make sure you knead the dough on a plastic board, so you don’t end up with a rainbow coloured wooden chopping board.
At The Brook Childcare, we encourage parents to carry out fun activities like this at home as it is a way of continuing the work we do at the centre with our learning programs. For more information on our learning programs, click here.
