Today we are talking about flour. Let’s offer our kids to draw on flour. You can use for it our deep sanboxes or simple tray. Let’s put a little bit of flour there. Suggest to draw different figures and patterns. Does it turn out?

Focus your kids on the feeling of touching the flour. Make a palm print. Pay attention to the palm becoming white, explain it.

Describe the features of flour: white, soft, light, pleasant, flowing, loose.

Suggest pouring a little bit of water into it.

Pour water into the flour. Look to the water turns white. What have we got? Dough.play-dough board

It can be surprising, that dough has a variety of developmental, learning, and sensory benefits for kids.
It can be both playdough, and dough for pastries. Kids are enjoying squishing, smashing, pushing, pulling, twisting, cutting…Children with great pleasure are connecting to the process of manufacturing cookies. You can roll out the dough, tear it, cut it in molds, make sausages and rolls, make dumplings, cut noodles and make pizza.

If we make salt dough, then this material is perfect not only for creating figures. For example, you can make prints with various objects, use the dough as a material to fasten various parts. For example, the boys are playing at the construction site when the dough played the role of cement.

Let’s sculpt different figures from the dough (play-doh like). Fantasize. Offer your kid to create unknown animals. Modeling helps to develop motor skills. Focus on small details and shapes.

During this play you can learn new animals, shapes and things.

Another interesting material for sensory play at home is starch. It is originally similar to flour’s properties, but even in dry form, it is distinguished by its tactile sensations. However, it is also possible to draw, dig in it, look for pictures and objects. But on dry starch it is much better and noticeable to leave traces, than on the flour, it is interesting to roll cars in it. And then you can clean them with a brush. And if you add a little bit of water to the starch, it will acquire some density, which will bring its properties closer to the lunar sand. You can try to sculpt out of it, make sand cakes, even build something.

Next interesting material for sensory play which you always can find at home is salt, it can not only be added to the dough but also to arrange a number of experiments: dissolve, make crystals, change the density of water. You can also paint with salt like with sand on some dark background – oilcloth or a large sheet of cardboard. It turns out very contrasting pictures that change under the touching of small fingers. However, you can draw the picture with glue and spread salt on it. To make such a picture bright, use liquid paints on the salt, and it becomes colorful.

You can even build with salt if you gently mix a small amount of water into it to make it raw. Here you can use sand molds.

Such play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.
