Simple Tools for Making Words in Play Dough is a do it yourself activity for children with fine motor and learning disabilities to do. Golf tees are good fine motor tools, as they are small and fit in a child’s hand correctly to build up that pencil grip. It takes finger strength to write words in the play dough. Letter tiles are good to use on a flat surface and stick in play dough. Play dough makes a good stand to build words on. Alphabet magnets are a staple in most early childhood classrooms. They are good to stamp down into the dough to spell sight words. Alphabet stamps can be used in ink. When finished, the child can squish it up, roll it out and make another word.
