Dough Disco

Physicality for writing is the first thing we focus on to prepare our little ones for writing. This is a fun activity that works on children's hand and wrist strength whilst developing their co-ordination and endurance.

All you need is a ball of dough and a little bit of enthusiasm.

Dough Disco involves several simple movements that are then put into fun songs.

They are:

  • Rolling the dough into a ball 
  • Squeezing the dough 
  • Patting the dough 
  • Splatting the dough
  • Pinching the dough around the outside
  • Rolling the dough into a sausage shape.

Please see below some helpful videos to follow.
