Playdough is good for child development as it promotes physical development. While poking, rolling, and squishing playdough, children develop the small muscles in their fingers and hands. They also gain strength and improve dexterity in their hands and fingers, critical areas of physical development for writing, drawing, and other purposes.
Let your children be captivated by all the colours of the rainbow with our great range of natural playdough tubs and sets. Nesk Kids stocks some of the softest, non-toxic, natural play dough, which is proudly made here in Australia. We supply the best playdough for toddlers. Our Aroma Playdough sets are infused with scents for wellness that encourage calming playtime for children, and our Mini Treats Playdough Collection is infused with yummy smells inspired by treats from our childhood.
The benefits of children playing with playdough are many - it develops fine motor skills, it's calming for children, it encourages creativity, it enhances hand-eye coordination, it improves social skills, it supports literacy and numeracy and it promotes playtime.
Some of our other toys that help encourage learning in young children are Wooden Educational Toys.
