Dough for modeling
405 (per set of dough for modeling 9 colors, 405 g. Dough from childhood)
Molding is the best developmental activity for children of any age, as it involves the work of both pens, develops fine motor skills, imagination, trains color perception and causes intense tactile sensations. You can do modeling with the kids, starting with a year. At two years old, the baby will be happy to try to roll balls and sausages with his mother. Regular wax clay is poorly suited for such activities - it is too hard for small fingers. Therefore, the best way out will be a soft dough for modeling: it is not only easily molded, but also has a natural composition that will not harm even if accidentally swallowed. The basis of this material is the usual salty dough with food dyes. As a rule, it has a salty or bitter taste, so once you try it (and the kid will definitely try to do it), the child is unlikely to want to repeat it again.
Expert opinion: “During modeling, the child develops fine motor skills, but this is far from all, because motor skills are directly related to the child’s speech function and develop in parallel, which means we conclude that modeling helps the development of the baby’s speech. It also affects the strength and mobility of the fingers, the coordination of movements, which is also quite a significant advantage. ” Bredikhina OS, “The Use of Sculpting”
