Description

Why not give your child hours of fun, while being sure they are strengthening the hand muscles they need for when they start writing. Add this to your range of play dough toys because it is a must for any programme working on fine motor skills activities.

With a global decline in children’s fine motor skills, this play dough press is an awesome strategy to curb the decline!

Research has shown grip strength in millennials has decreased so we have to be intentional about making sure our precious millennial isn’t part of those frightening stats. iPads encourage pointing and swiping instead of manipulative play. This means that the muscle foundations for pencil grip and handwriting are not getting the consolidation they need. This cool Play Dough Press – an adaptation of the garlic press – it great for the ultimate hand work out!

Who wouldn’t enjoy putting a ball of play dough into the Play Dough Press, giving the handles a hard squeeze and having spaghetti/hair/rain come out the other end?! Add a sheep or any other picture (not included) and they can cover him with hair, or add rain to the rain clouds or spaghetti to the meatballs – there is no limit to the creative fun your child can have while making his hand muscles strong!

We need our children to be developing the use of both their hands together! With this Play Dough Press the hands have to work together to roll the play dough ball and to squeeze the handles – unless they are super strong and can manage it with one hand!

We all find the gym hard at first so you can expect a few groans in the beginning – those muscles have not had to work so hard before! Invest in this Play Dough Press let your child stand out amongst the Millennials with strong hands and solid muscle foundations for fine motor skills. The Play Dough Press is the perfect fine motor activity for you and your little one!
