Dreaming up ideas with the dough…

💭 Laura and Imogen made some dough for their children and then sat back to observe what would happen next! What we discovered was that our children have THE BEST imaginations…The children were free to choose and add tools, materials and resources as they wished to enhance their dough play and the range of things selected and used reflected the diverse range of their wonderful ideas💡 We had cutters being used as plant pots and then golf tees were placed inside them as flowers and then one little one commented upon how one of the ‘flowers’ hadn’t grown as much as the others due to the difference in heights! We had children rolling and shaping using just their hands to create ‘snakes’ 🐍, some dough was shaped and manipulated to create ‘aliens’ and some yummy cakes and pancakes were also moulded. Ideas were dreamt up and dough was manipulated and our children’s imaginations were on 🔥 xxxx
