Winter play dough activities

You guys, can you believe it's already 2017? Wow! 2016 was a crazy year with a new baby, moving, and opening up Tot Labs! It's been a wonderful process, and I'm so honoured that you are here, reading about our adventures, now as a family of 4! 

Today, I am sharing a collection of some beautiful winter themed invitations to play with play dough! We've been loving our winter themed activities, but play dough is also a really fun way to work on important skills for kids. 

Working with play dough develops fine motor skills in young children and helps to strengthen the muscles in their hands. This is very important to writing and being able to properly grasp a pencil (or another writing utensil). 

With winter and cold weather all around us, here are some fun activities you can do indoors with your kids while at the same time helping to prepare them for writing!
