Bubbles and I sometimes make dough together. We used to add more food colouring for fancier-looking dough, but I've since noticed that adding less colouring doesn't make a difference to the fun factor for her.
We have been told by Bubbles' Paed that she has overly flexible joints (there's a medical term for this but I can't remember what it is!). As a result, doing things that require finer motor skills can be more challenging for her. This includes things like grasping a pencil and drawing or writing. Therefore, we need to help her work her little fingers and hands as much as possible, so as to strengthen her muscles and fine-tune her control of them. Playing with dough is one great way to do this.
I need to introduce more activities that require fine motor skills these school holidays!
