Overall, the aim of Dough Disco is to support children with hand writing skills. At Whipperley, we carry out Dough Disco is carried out a few times a week to warm up those important muscles in their hands, arms and shoulders. Each child is given out a ball of playdough when they sit in a circle with their peers and they follow the instructions given by the adult and also as the song is played. Children then use the playdough to roll, pinch, poke, pull, push, squeeze etc. using their hands. Dough Disco is also a really fun activity in which children have shown huge interest!
