Dough Disco and Squiggle


In Pod Pili-Pala we enjoy taking part in Dough Disco and Squiggle while you Wiggle, its a great way to start our day.  

Dough Disco is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children's fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem.  Squiggle whilst you wiggle is great fun and helps us get our muscles ready for our writing jobs!

Homemade Play dough


  1. 250g plain flour.
  2. 50g salt.
  3. 140ml water.
  4. 1 to 2 tablespoons cooking oil.
  5. few drops food colouring (optional)


Mix together the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the water and oil.

Knead well until mixture is smooth about 10 mins. You might need to add a bit more flour or water until the consistency is smooth but not sticky.

Add food colouring and knead until the colour is fully blended.

Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator until chilled enough to use.
