30 Christmas Play Recipes [Fine Motor Fridays]

This week’s Fine Motor Fridays posts are all different roundups featuring Fine Motor Skills for Christmas! Here at Craftulate we’re focusing on Christmas play dough and other play recipes. These 30 “hands-in” play recipes are great for working little fingers with all that pushing and squeezing, not to mention picking up small items to stick into the dough, hand-eye coordination for scooping the slime, and manual dexterity for decorating the clay!
