Dough Disco

Dough disco is a fun activity combining the use of playdough with a series of finger and hand exercises to music. The idea of these controlled exercises is to help build up strength in children's fine motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and helps to develop muscles ready for early mark making.

We are starting Dough Disco this week in nursery. If you are home learning and would like a tub of playdough to join in, please let us know via Evidence Me or you could make your own.

How to Make Playdough.


Can you use different shapes to create an alien?


What shapes have you used?

How many sides does a square have?

Can you add 6 arms to your alien?




Practice each of your letters in your name on a single square and build a rocket to fly to the moon. 

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star!

This is great for language skills and lots of fun!

Rhymes are really important for children’s literacy and

communication skills.
