Building Fine Motor Skills: Play Dough Tool Kit Ideas
Playdough tool kit
I absolutely LOVE using Play-Doh with the children because there are so many great ideas and opportunities that can be utilized, plus, the kids love it too! Play-Doh! Everyone knows about the fancy-store bought 'PlayDoh' brand toys, such as the burger maker and ice cream maker, but there are more educational (and cheaper) options that work even better! Burger Builder Young children can benefit from the use of Play Doh in many ways. It is great for fine motor development because it both builds strength in the hands/arms and allows the child to move their fingers in a way that they typically do not. Sticks Squeezing and manipulating Play Doh itself can be soothing, somewhat like a stress ball for adults, and you can do just about anything with it: mold it, squish it, roll it, poke it, cut it, (pretend) eat it. Clean up the Spaghetti You can roll it into balls, make "snakes" and cut it into small pieces, make molds out of it, and so much more. The container itself provides the child with lots of verbal prompts, such as "open," "help please," "more," and the color of the Play Doh. "Red Open" Thanks to The Imagination Tree (awesome resource), I found a "Play Doh Tool Kit" that adds to the possibilities. Once you add items to the Play Doh, you can bury and find, feel the textures, and stick stuff in it. Natural items, such as leaves and nuts are great to add to the Play Doh. Another fun thing to do is to create letters, either by drawing them or making a stamp, and stick items in the shape of the letter. Repetitively tracing letters with the finger is a great way for a child to develop early writing skills. Handwriting Skills Finally, Play Doh is a GREAT thing to incorporate into sensory integration play and with any child who has difficulties with sensory input, such as children with Autism. http://www.theimaginationtree.com/2012/06/benefits-of-playing-with-play-dough.html Katie Zink, ITFS/P

Sandtray Therapy: The Mother of all Therapy Techniques - DFW Center for Play Therapy Training
Sand tray therapy has been proven time and time again effective in allowing children to tell their story without actually telling their story. We have learned with sand tray therapy to identify certain actions and toys children use and link them to experiences in their life. With this therapy the counselor simply lets the child "play" and observes their actions and how they tell their story through the inanimate objects. Sand tray therapy is very effective for children who have been traumatized.

Story stones provide a super opportunity for imaginative play, and there’s some great sensory stuff going on too: the colors are vibrant, they’re cool to the touch, and for me there’s something soothing about the sound of stones clacking together as you play with them.
Storytelling Stones, Crafts Rocks, Idea, Story Stones Diy, Diy Story Stones, Stones Fun, Kid
Story stones - fun and easy to make with rocks, pictures and mod-podge! Encourage story-telling and creative play!
DIY Story Stones, what a great idea! All you need is mod podge, magazine cutouts/stickers and varnish!
Make some DIY story stones with the kids in lieu of reading a book. Set them free with some colourful pens or acrylic paints (for older kids). Get them to bring their stones back to the circle and make up your own colorful story. The challenge then is to throw in the vegetable sensory play into their story. Appeal to the imagination. Invitation to Play.

more stones for the kids to make and play with on a camping trip.....but I love the idea for the kids to tell a story with them!
story stones--so cute! Can use stickers, cut outs from magazines or old books, and modge podge over the pic. Kids pick a stone out, begin a story, and the next child adds on to it by picking another stone, etc.
Love the idea of story stones. Approximately 20897 X better than plastic toys for engaging children. Plus, possibly more economical, so I could make a bunch of each picture so children can take them home as they are practicing certain sounds. For practicing sounds, rhyming, story sequencing/telling, practicing abstracts.
story stones - happy hooligans - make your own with mod-podge & rocks
