Playdough! It's an age-old favorite of kids and adults alike. For young children, it is also an important tool in helping strengthen finger muscles. Fine motor skills are crucial when it comes to writing and drawing, tying shoes, buttoning buttons, etc. Read more about the power of playdough from the National Association for the Education of Young Children. https://www.naeyc.org/our-work/families/playdough-power
