Non-scented play dough is in itself a great sensory play experience, as it involves touch and sight, and lots of hand-eye coordination. Dough Parlour brings a THIRD sensory component to the table... with our delightfully scented play dough. Because our ingredients are 100% food-based, safe and non-toxic, that means your child can sniff, and even taste if he wants to! We never recommend tasting or eating our dough though, because of the high sea salt content! Go ahead and explore our variety of scents and colours!
As an early childhood educator, I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with children with different abilities, temperaments, personalities and cultural backgrounds. It can be challenging bringing a group of diverse children together in one spot, quietly.
One of the best activities to do as a group was playing with play dough. I remember sitting in the corner in amazement as the children would engage in the most adorable conversations with each other. They would ask each other questions, trade their tools and accessories. Friendships blossomed. And sometimes, they just sat quietly and calmly. Whatever engagement level or mood my kids were in, playing with play dough also meant learning to socialize.
We get it. Playing with dough can get messy sometimes. But as an early childhood educator, I can assure you that the benefits are incredible, so hear us out!
