Hole Punch Play Dough

After seeing this idea at JDaneil4's Mom blog about using a hole punch with play dough, I created some quick templates for using hole punched play dough.  What a great way to sneak in some hand strengthening by using the hole punch.  It is not just the hole punch, you have to flatten the dough (pincer or tripod grasp), squeeze the handle (finger flexors and more) and pick up the dots (pincer grasp).  Plus, the colorful play dough dots are really pretty.   Here is a tip - use older or firm play dough.  If it is brand new play dough the dots get stuck.  You can get the directions and the free templates to print at
