This week during our Dough Disco session, the children requested the song, Witch Doctor by the Cartoons. Whilst singing along we used our hands to:

squeeze it,

ball it,

pat it,

take each finger to the dance floor,

make a sausage,

pinch it,

make a pizza,

play a piano,

make a donut.

If you have your own play dough you can put on your favourite music and have your own dough disco. This activity helps to strengthen your child’s fine motor muscles to enable them to develop their pencil grip which in turn will help to develop their writing skills in the future.
