This simple, no cook dough will keep your children busy for hours. The children I work with call it fossil dough because of the texture and it’s ability to make wonderful imprints of their dinosaurs. (good for my Toob dinosaur skulls)
We have recently sorted our provision in the water tray to ensure a focus on #finemotorskills primary over than #grossmotorskills, so we enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. There was barely space to wash the clothes in the end as everyone wanted to join in. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!
Bear hunt tough spot idea! The children loved playing and rebelling the story, also a lovely sensory activity. I used grass, a bowl of water, some mud, twigs, hamster bedding and glitter (!!) and made a cave using a loo roll and newspaper. The writing was just chalk straight onto the tray :)
